What are you knitting? I think if you just turn it inside out so that you're knitting on the near side of the round instead of the far side, you'll get your outside on the outside. I accidentally turned my sock inside out at one point, but once I figured it out and turned it back, it didn't seem to have made any difference...

It might be easier once you get a couple inches from the cast on edge. Sometimes the first few rows up to an inch or so can flip-flop inside out on you if you're not careful. It gets easier the more rows you get finished.
