The horror! THE HORROR!!! Did anyone notice that the design was very hard to see on that spider pumpkin. That side was hideous for carving.
Also, slicing of the outer layer of skin weakens the clarity of the final design. I have noticed this on alot of kins that I see in the neighborhood.
The worst part was this "Using a fiercely sharp knife with the blade pointing away from you, cut along those lines, into the flesh. Angle the knife slightly inwards: if you cut down vertically, the lid might fall into the pumpkin.
MIGHT! MIIGHT!! dumba** it WILL
fall in. I can say this from past mistakes.
God and those patterns were hideous too.
