Well, here is the anenome inspired vessel I've been working on. The main body is constructed of wool with shredded mylar, snippets of handspun yarn and tule felted into it. I used mohair locks to simulate tentacles. There are several openings in this vessel that are hidden by the mohair locks. A large central opening, a deep, narrow pocket that runs completely around the inside egde and four corner pockets that are perfect for tucking knitting needles into. I've been thinking about tucking in a pair of hand-dyed needles and spinning up some funky complimentary yarn, winding it into a ball and tucking it into the middle with a small tail exposed. With the yarn hidden inside, you'd have to start knitting with the needles provided and slowly expose the surprise within. I think it would be hard not to peek at the ball of yarn hidden inside though. If you could restrain yourself, it really would be quite the knitting adventure.
