Part of the Knitting Updates introduced at Rumor Woods in 2022, the Yarn Bowl (aka Knitting Bowl) allows you to store yarn within. At higher tiers, it allows you to sacrifice unscripted clothing and bolts of fabric to it (provided the fabric-type matches) to create custom yarn.

Tier 1

At tier 1, the yarn bowl can store up to 24 skeins of yarn.

Analyze

The Knitting Bowl!

Designed to store 24 skeins of yarn, the bowl is easy to use:

1.  PUT YARN IN BOWL (store your yarn)
2.  GAZE my BOWL (view stored yarn)
3.  GLANCE my BOWL (view only the upper most yarn)
4.  SPIN my BOWL (cycle other yarn to the top)
5.  TINKER with my BOWL (pull yarn back out of bowl)

A curl-edged knitting bowl resembling fused lotus blossoms is 1 out of 3 Tiers.

Alterations: It must remain some kind of bowl, but can have a vessel-like noun.  It should be made of a reasonable material and remain lightweight.  As it will have painted lines within it when you add yarn, you may wish it to be a lighter color on the inside.

Tier 2 allows the bowl to store a pair of knitting needles along with the yarn, and can be WHISPERed at to sort to a specific yarn color.

Tier 3

At this tier, the yarn bowl can make yarn out of fabric inserted into it. It can also provide additional descriptions for the yarn produced, which it refers to as "pronouns" in the analyze. Those additional yarn customizations include: coarse, frayed, fuzzy, gradient, knotted, lightweight, lustrous, shiny, soft, thick, thin, and winterweight. The yarn bowl may store up to eight more yarn customizations beyond that list.
