Leaving unworked stitches on the left needle is where the term "short row" comes from. You are not working to the end of the row. Instead, you are working "short."

So follow the instructions and do your W&T, then simply turn your work by switching the left needle (with the unworked stitches) to your right hand and the right needle to your left. Now start working according to your directions as if you had just set your work down in the middle of a row and were just picking it up again.

It may seem a little awkward, but give it a try and I think you'll get the hang of it.
