Cliché: keep your fingers crossed

Meaning: hope for your wanted outcome (example)

Rewrite 1: keep your fingers x'd
Rewrite 2: keep your fingers locked
Rewrite 3: keep your fingers tied
Rewrite 4: keep your knuckles knotted
Rewrite 5: keep your digits tangled

Comment: A variant is "cross your fingers," so you could also play with that in this rewrite.
