It still varies from signer to signer...but for the year 2011 you are
generally safe signing 2 (palm forward) zero (palm forward) and then 11
(palm backward with a single upward flick of the index finger). There is
only a slight rightward movement (for right-handed signers).
Another method is to use a "modified" "in-air only" "one-handed" "shortened
movement" version of the sign "thousand." 2 "thousand" 11. I've seen
that used by quite a few interpreters (more-so than Deaf).
