Thanksgiving is over. Cyber Monday is done. Now that we are heading into the holiday season, my mind turns to chocolate. Who am I kidding? Chocolate is welcomed anytime.
Pen: Pilot Falcon SF
Ink: Diamine Chocolate Brown
Paper: Rhodia No. 16 Grid
Chocolate Brown is a warm brown. It and of reminds me of Caroube de Chypre without the sparkles. Shades. No sheen. Great shading I think. Especially when fleing. Only problem is tat it railraods when fleing. Double back can fix or leave it for character?
Ink is smooth. Flexing works ok with Falcon nib. Just wish it did not railroad as much. It’s OK with regular writing though.
That’s all folks. Out of ink.
Chocolate Brown. Looks yum. Too bad it's not chocolate scented. That’s all.
It's been a few months since I last posted a Currently Inked. Over this time, I've experimented with the number of pens I have inked up at any time. At one point I had as many as 12 pens inked. It got to be a bit too much to manage. Too many pens to track and maintain. Now I'm trying to keep to 6 inked pens with a complete refresh every month.
Well, Thanksgiving is over. Cyber Monday is done. Now that we are heading into the holiday season, my mind turns to chocolate. Who am I kidding? Any time is chocolate time.
The days are shorter and the weather is cooler. But thankfully, I still have pen + ink combos from the summer to look back on. This week it’s a match up from my August line-up.

October came and went in a flash! With the Scriptus pen showthis past Sunday and yesterday being Halloween, I didn't have much time to prepare my pen + ink combos for November. Without further ado, here they are...
October has been fairly light in terms of travel but duty called. This time the duties as a hockey mom which involved going with my son and his team to the city of Kitchener for a hockey tournament. Originally this was supposed to be a 3 day trip but cut short by the sad reality that our team did not make it into the final day of the tournament. On a positive note, it gave me an opportunity to plan another pen + ink load out.
Apart from my must-bring Hobo and TN, I wanted to bring whatever pens and paper I could fit inside a larger case. The case I had in mind was the A5 sized Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in Bag. I was expecting to travel a lot from rink to rink and I wanted a self-contained writing tool kit that I could bring along.
Last Wednesday, I posted some picturesI took on a recent hike. In fact, I went on a 1 night, 1 day get away trip to the cottage with the family. To be precise, we headed up on Friday night, September 30th. And headed back home on October 1st. I pondered a bit on what pens I should take seeing as I still had a couple of September inked pens to use up and my planned pens for October were only partially inked up. So, I did what any rational pen addict would do for a 1 day trip that starts at the last day of one month and ends on the first day of the next month: I took all pens in sight!
I’m posting my pen & ink line-up a later than originally planned. I had hoped that a new pen that shipped out at the end of September would have arrived in time to join the October line-up. I decided to go ahead and post my Currently Inked for October and do an addendum for the new pen.
So it's officially the first day of fall. Hard to believe since the days keep ticking off so fast. For this Throwback Thursday, I take a look at another pen & ink combo from my July loadout.
Considering it's already Saturday, this Throwback Thursday is definitely late. Unfortunately, I've been tied up with a couple days of meetings and travel. Better late than never, I suppose.
Today's Throwback is a look at another pen and ink combo I used during the summer.
It’s the unofficial end of summer. The weather is cooler and days are shorter. My little guy is ready for a new school year. It’ll be back to normal routines both at home and work. I echo this sentiment with this a new pen and ink line-up.
