Frog or just start over

I just finished some short rows and was doing the wrap stitch wrong at the one end so I now have a hole/gap at the one side of every short row.

I've never been very good at frogging back to before the error.

What do you think, would you rip it out and just start over? It's 2 inches of trim waistband, and another 3 inches of main body (MMW on 7's)


OR, does anyone have any great tips on how to frog easily? (I always seem to mess it up when I try to just pull the needles completely out but this is too much to do with it on the needles stitch by stitch).

A knitting book I have has you thread scrap yarn through one side of each stitch on the row you wish to rip to. The same as you would have for marking where you are planning on adding a skirty. This way you don't drop a stitch when putting them back onto the kneedle.
