@AnasaziWrites - I aspire to your Spencerian and to your wit!

@Erica McPhee - What perfect knotted hearts, and a perfect script to match.  We had similar ideas (but I'm not as happy with the execution on mine; the Troublemaker ink on the big knot was more troublesome than I had anticipated)

@AnasaziWrites - Impeccable uncials!

5. Raven

both pieces are done in Parker Quink black - which might be my favorite drawing ink ever.  Look at that chromatography!

So @AnasaziWrites won the internet with "Knot" -- superb!  I'm speechless.
@Erica McPhee - as always, you are too kind!

7. Fan

Bonus content: the anthem [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xw5UBYbmnTE], which demonstrates that fans can do the spelling, even if we seldom have to do the maths. The joke is that wee children think the team's full name is "Partick Thistle Nil." Also, pretty clean for a Scottish football anthem!

A fellow whisky appreciator? Very nice rendition of the bottle.

Why yes, @AnasaziWrites - I quite appreciate the Lagavulin 16! although the spouse prefers something more distinctively peaty & smokey, like the Ardbeg or the Laphroaig.  Spent our honeymoon on Islay (spouse's ancestral family home), and love everything about the Hebrides, Shetlands, and Orkneys.  Seems I've had three Scotland themed Inktober posts already - Sixareen from the Shetlands; Lagavulin from the Hebrides; Partick Thistle from Glasgow.

Many thanks for your kind thoughts about the sketch of the bottle - possibly I've spent a bit too much time studying it...

spirit fan

Big fan of this spirit.
Generally have at least four varieties on hand at all times. They were in Atlanta in May, and I was able to score a bottle of the "Scorch," being a committee member.
Perhaps your wife is familiar with it @K-2  ?
