  1. I am trying the challenge! I am stuck on #11...not quite sure how to interpret it. LOL, I am such a visual person...this is an extra interesting challenge!

  2. I'll give you a clue - there is a place where the term "shoelace trick" would be helpful or if you were using 2 shuttles instead of a ball and shuttle, you could say "switch shuttles". Also, if you read to the end after the triangle motif, it tells you what to do with the long picot in step #7.
