Making Use Of My Halloween Pumpkin

I made sure to buy an organic pumpkin this year and carved it with my lovable faux Frost knife....
I don't like being wasteful and could have done better with utilizing my jack-o-lanterns' sacrificed pieces parts...
so here is what I did do, and wish I had done ::::

1. Save the seeds to plant next summer (win)
2. Save seeds to roast & eat (fail)
3. scoop out innards and cook it down to eat (fail)
4. light a candle in it and feel total artistic pumpkin carving bliss (win!)
5. feed the carved pumpkin to my chickens when it's face starts to cave in (future win)

Ya'll have any more ideas??!

Love your pumpkin! I had a different set of wins and fails from you. I don't know if I will be able to have a garden next year, but I LOVE pumpkin, so I always toast the seeds and cook the "innards"- or feed them to the parrots. No chickens to eat the art (I had a ghostly attack parrot on it) so does feeding it to the wild animals count?

And Leslie, do you still have your store? I just tried to go to it and couldn't reach it.

One more thing, again totally off topic- where do you get your socks? I know I should be knitting them, but with my business starting up, I don't have as much time...

Hey Meg!
Anyone eating it is good :)))

I will check on the store, it might have something to do with the hosting company... i will get it fixed hopefully today.

My socks are from american apparel, those are their long cotton socks. I think there are other companies that make big long eco socks now, but i can't for the life of me remember the name.... Sock Dreams??!!?? I love long socks! I crochet, but I don't knit, i winder if i could crochet a comfy pair of long socks?

Oh yes, long socks are very awesome! And warm. I have to wear all organic, though, and those seem to be harder to find. I did finally find some here, though- http://www.josanaturally.com/index.html

Hey, maybe you could crotchet some! I don't know how it would work since crotchet is not as stretchy, but then I don't do a lot of crotchet, mostly just for embellishment, so I wouldn't be the one to ask!
