My original victim sent his work to me very quickly. I got one sock and the ribbing on a second this afternoon. Finishing was tricky. I had to try three different needle sizes to try and match his gauge. I wasn't as successful as I would've liked. Perhaps blocking will help. I hope it will.
I'm still listed as Alive. I have no idea what's going on with my assassin. I think I know who she is. She hasn't posted anything to the Yahoo group where all the war activity is. I guess I'll go see if she's part of Ravelry.
