Written for Sarah Robertson (now Goodyear) after she agreed to marry me!
Partners are in different sets during the Petronella twirls, so dancers should twirl either not quite once or once and a half for the second twirl to find their partners.
During the long lines in A1 dancers should make sure that they are facing a new couple. Alternatively, a reasonable variation is to replace the long lines with a circle to the left with new neighbors.
