B2 8
gentlespoons start a half hey - lefts in center, rights on ends

End effects are a bit tricky. If you're a ladle out at the end after courtesy turning your shadow, then you want to quickly cross the set for the long lines forward and back. You need to be next to your partner (across the set from your shadow, if you're at the end) so that they can roll you away for the progression.
