Chinese Cacography (i.e. chicken scratch) is my attempt to combine using fountain pens and Chinese characters writing practice. Unless otherwise noted, the paper used is always Baron Fig Apprentice Dot grid.
The arrival of October brings to mind fall colours capped off with Halloween. So, my pen and ink line up for the month rich reds, oranges and brown. The one limitation was that the ink had to come stored in plastic bottles. This was because October 1 fell on Sunday but I headed up to our family cottage for the weekend on Friday. I didn't have time to ink up before leaving for our trip hence, I tried to choose ink bottles that wouldn't crack.
My Galen Leather zippered pen case tagged along for a hike and pens came out to admire the fall colours and scent of pine needles.
The themes for July are Canada's 150 and travel.
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.
A quick look at the Penvelope Six.
Well, while pen friends in the United States are celebrating Thanksgiving Day, it’s just a regular Thursday for me. For this week’s Throwback Thursday, I look at another pen + ink combination from my August line-up.

Pen friends in the US are celebrating Thanksgiving this week and the countdown to Black Friday begins! It got me thinking that a holiday gift guide would be helpful. This guide is primarily intended for the non-pen person looking for a gift for the fountain pen aficionado, whether newbie or seasoned, in his or her life.
