Is it too early to be carving pumpkins?

A friend of mine hosted an early pumpkin carving party this week because it’s the best holiday (and these things are already being sold at HEB). Since I only started carving pumpkins a few years ago, I try and make up for lost time and carve something more and more complicated or difficult every year. Last year I did the pony from Kate Beaton’s Hark a Vagrant! webcomic (and Adventure Time, depending on who you ask).

This year I decided to do a daruma doll face. It ended up looking a lot like a grumpy old man, but I’m still quite pleased with how it came out.


Here’s a group shot of the whole party’s work (I had so many pumpkin seeds to roast!):


Happy (way, way early) Halloween!
