Hello! I am in ASL 1 and recently came across a sign I don't know. It is signed by using a five-hand position (open palm) (dominant hand) and the thumb is tapped to the dominant side shoulder.

I'm new to this site and ASL in general so I apologize if my description was a little confusing. Thank you!

There are two signs that come to mind based on your description.  FINE, as in I'm fine.  People will use it to mean OK sometimes as well. As in saying, That's fine, or that's ok.  I"m fine or I'm ok. 

 

It can also mean FANCY if the hand is used in kind of a forward circular motion.

    • This is excellent news. i'm on pacific time because I'm on the west coast. I'd be willing to get together sometime between morning and noon here. I'll check this site in the morning. I hope you are actively checking this site.
    • Hey all, I would be down to be a practice partner. Id say im an advanced beginner willing to sign with anyone.
    • Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups.  Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)).  Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline.  It can be tricky with time zone differe
