VERB First person Third Person
LOOK Fashioned of bright red cotton, the pincushion resembles a rather plump tomato. Dimples appear in the fabric where past items have been stabbed into it, causing tiny tufts of filling to peek out of the compact cushion. A pale white oak awl is plunged into the center; the tiny etched words on its side reading "Knitted Mittens" are prominently displayed. NA
NUDGE You clean up a bit of dust from a pale white oak awl etched with "Knitted Mittens" that is stored in the center of your tomato red pincushion. Jenny cleans up a bit of dust from a pale white oak awl etched with "Knitted Mittens" that is stored in center of his tomato red pincushion.
PLUCK Glancing over your tomato red pincushion, you pluck a pale white oak awl free from its cushioned surface. Glancing over his tomato red pincushion, XXX plucks a pale white oak awl free from its cushioned surface.
PONDER You peruse your tomato red pincushion, contemplating all the fun you could have by adding fun little zests to your knitted projects. XXX ponders his tomato red pincushion, his expression almost comically serious as he spends time contemplating it.
PUT Turning your tomato red pincushion this way and that, you look for a good space to jab your pale white oak awl into it. After only a moment of concentration, you stab it into the cushioned center! Turning his tomato red pincushion this way and that, XXX seems to be perusing the open real estate on the pincushion surface. After only a moment, he stabs a pale white oak awl into the cushioned center!
TOSS You toss your tomato red pincushion into the air, holding out your hand out in anticipation of its descent. You suddenly remember that the pincushion has at least one awl in it and try to figure out how best to catch it without stabbing yourself. Unfortunately, your overthinking has done you in and you grab it right at the head of an awl! Oh! That smarts! XXX tosses his tomato red pincushion into the air, holding out his hand in anticipation of its descent. He waits a moment too late to catch it and accidentally grips the pincushion where an awl rests, causing it to stab into his hand. That can't feel good.
