  • gyre for all four: people can keep eyes on their diagonal opposite as they gyre around. One and one quarter puts the gentlespoons above the ladles in the set, and the gaze shifts to partner. Teaching may be easier if it is taught initially with a hands across star, then have people leave the hands out.

Martha Wild notes: I was concerned that it would seem like too much clockwise motion, but people did not find that an issue, perhaps because the second half has little.
