Stick a paper clip into the first stitch of your round, then you can see where it is to join into and continue.  Then move it up into the first stitch of the next round.  It makes it much, much easier to keep track of where the round started, how many stitches you've done so far, and where to join.

Echoing kirsa's statement. Pretty much anything will do--personally, if I don't have a stitch marker\paper clip\whatever handy, I just use a tiny bit of scrap yarn in its place. Smiley

Also, I don't know if you need the following info or not, but it took me a little while to learn, myself:

When reaching the end of the round, stop in the stitch that is right before the stitch with the marker\paper clip\scrap yarn in it. Remove the marker and place it in the loop that is on your hook. After this is done, any further crocheting you do will be into a new round.

Just rinse and repeat whenever you crochet around to where the stitch marker is. Hope this was helpful!
