Hello Everyone and Eyasu!
This is great to see some SignWriting symbols next to the pictures,  

Are you happy with the symbols you have chosen for these hand  
positions? Do you think that other Ethiopian signers would know what  
you are writing, without the pictures? If so, then why not add those  
to your Ethiopian SignPuddle? I added your first one to the Ethiopian  
SignPuddle already, as you know, using the name U1..Have you seen  
that one in your puddle?...Was that the way you wanted it named...U1?...
