    Everybody snuggle around Super and bask in the warmth!
    On another note, between Noodler’s Black Swan in English Roses and Noodler’s Nightshade, which do you prefer?

    I have that ink! It just arrived with my newest order – all wonderful. I bought the ink on a whim and very glad I did. It is so pretty and it has a lovely fad from red in the bottle to red/brown/black as you described. I’ve only so far tested it with a simple dip pen but will soon load it into my new TSWBI AL green… also from that order… should be a lovely pairing.

    Hope you kept warm in your storm… we’ve had one here too but only rain and wind… it is Vancouver after all.

    All the best!

      I’m so glad to hear you are enjoying the ink! It’s one of my favourites, although I tend to be biased towards the red/brown/yellow family 🙂 And I think it will look great in your TWSBI Al-Green.

      Thanks for reading along with us, and taking the time to write! I am certainly looking forward to warmer weather – it’s just around the corner now!

  3. It’s a great shade of ink. I like its bloodiness — it was perfect for marking student papers. However, it does not quite agree with my left-handedness. It takes more time to dry than Noodler’s black inks, or the J. Herbin inks I’ve tried. I therefore have to strap a paper towel to my hand to imbibe to overflow, so it does not stain my papers. A small cost to pay to mark in blood.

      HAHA – it’s always a great start to the morning when a comment makes you laugh out loud! It is a great shade for marking paper, and I’m glad to see you’ve found a good compromise 😀

  4. I love a good ink that shades. It brings a certain visual depth to the written word. I think that that’s the very aspect that made me fall in love with fountain pens.

    It’s good to see a red ink colour that hasn’t got the “I just corrected your term paper” kinda vibe to it. 🙂

      Yes, I agree! There’s something about how ink shades from a fountain pen, even just very subtly, that gives it some depth and character!

      I don’t know what it is, but I’m not as much a fan of really bright reds or colours! I like a lot of browns and greys and darker or warmer reds, and this is a real favourite of mine! Thanks so much for reading 🙂 – and hope you had a happy birthday! 🙂

    Oh, I think I found my new ink love ❤. I know what I’m ordering next payday!

    Love the tone of the blog post. It gave me the chuckle that I needed this morning.
