Lost stitch marker
So I was fixing a big, pain in the *** mistake that forced me to put in a life line and restart a few rows lower. While I was working on it, I pulled off the stitch marker but forgot to replace it! :( Now I can't figure out where the round starts.

Any way to figure out where a round begins? Or is it a ton of row counting?

It's a very basic bag that alternates colors every x amount of rows. It follows the fibonacci sequence, but it's just knitting about 100 stitches in the round. I just need to have an idea where the round ends so I can make the stripes straight.

If you can see your tail from the CO, follow that point up between stitches to where you are now.

yup just like suzeeq look for the tail and that is the starting point of the round.

You should be able to find it with the color change if it starts at the beginning of the round. Otherwise, you may need to count purl or garter ridges and there will be a difference using the tail as a close-by or starting point.
