After the circle and pass through, first gentlespoon and second ladle are in the line to the caller's left.

In typical push offs, you push off with same roles neighbors. Here you push off with your partners, so it may be useful to give this tip - facing across, you start on the left, go into the middle, push off, and back up to the right.

See Proper and Cross Contra Formations and Chris Page's contrachoreography for information on cross contra formation (referred to as diagonal formation).
