Sometimes, the stars align and my in-box is full of tips related to one specific topic. This week, it seemed to be all things pencIl-related. So, I thought I’d share my finds.
This darling little pencil twig topped with a big pink eraser “mashmallow”. Perfect for fireside doodles. $13.99 from Animi Causa.
Then I found this beautiful hand dyed yarn from Yarn Enabler on Etsy that will stripe as you knit to make these awesome pencil socks. Yellow pencil stitch markers are also available as part of the kit. Yarn kit with stitch markers are $30.69US.
And my last pencil-related find this week is a darling little children’s book called Little Red Writing by Joan Holub and illustrated by Melissa Sweet about “a brave, little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of writing a story, faces a ravenous pencil sharpener (the Wolf 3000).” $12.75 on Amazon.

Not sure if you’re open to extending the pencil theme, but you might be interested to watch my video on re-discovering the iconic Palomino Blackwing after a half-century hiatus.
Wow. The No. 2 Pencil Kit is perfection! And, enabled!
We have that book, and it’s got a TON of great pencil puns in it. It’s a good story, too, with the villain being an electric sharpener. 🙂
Damn, I want those socks!
Oh my goodness, love the pencil yarn and I am dying for her watermelon one too! Ack!
That marshmallow stick pencil is the cutest thing to write with I have ever seen!
