mysterious extra *rows*
Hi - I've been knitting for a few years, so I like to think I'm pretty good at it. However, I just ran across something and am totally baffled. I'm knitting in stockinette, and somehow, (on the right side) I've just finished row 4 at the right end of the needle, and row 8 at the left end. Where did those 4 extra rows come from? How did I do that? Is this something that can be done on purpose?

Thanks for any insight.

Just for're using circs rather than straights? (needles)

Possibly you picked up your work and went the other direction. Is there a sort of hole at the point where there's 4 rows/8 rows?

straight needles; no holes...

You mean that as the work is now, there are 8 rows on one side and 4 on the other side? Sounds like short rows to me.

thanks - I've heard of short rows, but have never (knowingly) attempted them.
