Well, that could be the case. SMILE. But it might also be the fact that I am
younger too. As for which are in ASL, up to 01-07-04 are used in a few
signs. However, 01-07-05 and after maybe seen once in a blue moon, like when
there is sign play. (That might be the reason that I can so the handshapes,
I do a lot of sign play. HA!)

hands are more limber? grin ;-)

The handshape for number 7 in ASL is in that Group 01-07...Are there others
in Group 01-07 that are used in ASL? Just curious....Take a look at the
