pulling thread off a weaving machine ;-)

Here is my first writing from what i saw on video 4...I may not have  
understood what the sign meant...

It looked like two circles to me that are finishing in different  
handshapes each time...like pulling the threads off a turning  
wheel...alternating motion...while one moves down and around the  
other is moving up and around...at the top of the circle the hand is  
open, and at the bottom of the circle the hands are in an A  
handshape...but i will try one more writing and then leave all this  
to you....

When the story is all written, I can read the document in front of  
you, and try to produce the movements properly from reading the  
document, without knowing the meaning of the signs, and that will  
test to see if the writing is read properly...like the sign for  
SUFFER...Adam wrote it, and I mis-read it, and then we worked on  
it...it took time but was really good to work on writing in that  
way ;-))
