Excellent exercises, Stefan.

I can at least understand the confusion between right and left hands here,
but the switching occurs when you have a hand with fingers on both sides of
the hand sticking out, like the angle hand with the thumb. The thumb must
be on the side of the hand where it appears alone, like the fingers in an
angle hand with the thumb sticking out. One can easily follow the thumb if
it appears alone. When it appears as a wedge hand, or a C, or a hook, then
one must follow the majority of the fingers and switch them from the left to
the right side of the page accordingly. It gets a bit confusing, but it IS
