I hold my thumbnail right under those stitches as I pull the needle out, as above. That helps to keep them from running before I get them back on the other needle. If one does get away, keep a crochet hook handy to "walk" the stich back up - or I just reknit the stitch with the needles by picking up the loose bar with left needle tip and moving stitch over it with right tip.

i put a stitch holder (kind that closes) into the stitches on the 'good' row so that if it accidentally gets away from me it can't go too far.
