Should I repeat the word "hand" in this sentence?

My right hand is holding my left hand.

Or, are there other ways to say that? For example:

My right hand is holding the other one.

or simply:

My right hand is holding my left.

I'd like to know what's more common to say.

It is possible to omit the word "hand" and say "My right hand is holding my left". We can understand that "left hand" is implied.

You can also use the pronoun "one": My right hand is holding my left one.
