you can check out Silver's sock tutorial for joining in the round...it helps me all the time! http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Start.htm
but you won't be flipping RS to WS anymore when you knit in the round...just knit stitch when you are in the round, the RS will be on the outside. Pull the first stitch or 2 really tight when joining and the hole will be minimized too. Good luck! Hope that helps!
