Aljanon - thanks. Yes, the ROOST = settle is fine. It was the "felt deeply" that I was a bit antsy about.
My next one is this:
Needle friendly judge with 'arangue? (8)
Using the R from ROOSTED:
- N - E - - - R
Maybe INJECTOR? HECTOR pronounced 'ECTOR.
I am almost finished now, except I have a couple of niggling doubts about this across clue:
Knock back pounds in ice cream, all together (2, 4)
- N / - (y) - C.
I have IN SYNC
I and C = ice cream
But am not certain of the Y which depends on another answer being right.
And where do pounds being knocked back come in? (NYSN are the letters in reverse - leaving out the IC for ice cream)
