permission denied error

I am trying to cobble together my own system using instructions from the lfs.  
Everything was going fine until I got to "mkdir ../binutils-build" and got 
this error message ;

lfs:~$ pwd
lfs:~$ mkdir ../binutils-build
mkdir: cannot create directory `../binutils-build': Permission denied.

As you can tell, I am logged in as user lfs and in my home directory. Do I 
need to  "su" to a different directory and issue the mkdir command or is 
there something else I need to do.

Any help will be appreciated
