Cunfuzzled -- pom poms

I dont understand the directions on how to make a pom pom, can someone give me some help? heres what the directions say…

Use the supplied pieces of cardboard to make pom poms.
Cut 2 1/2 yards of CC yarn.
Wrap around the cardboard (more wraps you make, fuller it will be)
Use tapestry needle to draw a 6" legnthof CC yarn betweenthe wrapped yarn & the cardboard – tie a single knot.
slip the wrapped yarn off the cardboard & tighten knot. secure with a double knot – do not cut tie ends. …

I get it til the tapestry needle part… I dont get that?? :-x :? :grrr:

Here are some directions as well as here and here.
