I end the week with slightly different pens and inks from when I started on Monday – the ink all up in my Kakuno feed just annoyed me too much, and if I was gonna flush that… Well, in for a penny, in for a pound haha. The inks: Pilot Metropolitan = Iroshizuku Yama-Budo. Pilot Kakuno = Diamine Graphite. Lamy Apple Green = Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. Lamy Lime = Iroshizuku Tsutsuji. Lamy Neon Coral = Platinum Carbon Black.
The inks in each pen. It’s a good thing the ink samples take me awhile to go through, cause I’d have to buy all 3 of the Iroshizuku inks otherwise!
Sunday was pen cleaning time, perfect for some Lamy Safari fountain pen love.
What My Pens Are Named – Part 5
Continuing the What My Pens Are Named series. This Limited Edition Lamy Safari was tough to name. After narrowly avoiding Leonardo di Limeo, I was listening to the “Put the lime in the coconut” song, and so it became Lyminda Coconut instead. You can see I somehow stained the rim reddish, I have no clue what ink did that. Oh well, my pens are definitely broken in and well used!
The Limited Edition Apple Green Lamy Safari was easier, it of course became Granny Smith, after the type of apple.
The Limited Edition Neon Yellow Lamy Safari, (which continues to defy having its true highlighter yellow color captured by my phone camera) is named Zazzles. Because it’s just so zazzle-y.
And, all together now!
Green ink is getting me ready for Spring! I love that this ink matches the pen, even though I’m not usually so matchy-matchy.
This week’s pens and inks.
Warm summer colors are making me happy today, on a cold, dreary, slushy day here in Colorado.
Today’s work tools: my Levenger Circa Junior notebook, a Lamy Safari fountain pen, and some highlighting pencils I got from Levenger a few years ago.
Levenger Circa Notebook with custom cover and Lamy Safari fountain pens. The one downside to my fine-nibbed pens? They REALLY don’t like writing on sticky notes.
