MXY likes to knit. The repetitive motion soothes his busy brain, quieting the intrusive thoughts. He creates all sorts of knitted clothes and artworks, quickly filling up his apartment One day, he shows WN how to knit

His quiet friend had been looking for a hobby he could do with someone, but wouldn't require a lot of talking. The moment MXY teaches him, WN feels like a new world has opened for him. He thinks of ALL THE THINGS he could knit So they start a knitting club together
It's peaceful. It's creative. They make scarves, they make flowers, they make sweaters... If you can knit it, then they found the pattern (or created it!) and knitted it Not only does MXY's apartment fill with knitted items, but WN's does too
WN often looks around his apartment, smiling gently at the bright things he's created. He decides his next project will be to knit a nice sweater for his jiejie - after all, she feels the cold more than most, and deserves something she can snuggle in
When WQ receives the gift, she's delighted. Then she asks for WN and MXY to teach her how to knit. She wants to surprise her girlfriend MM with a pink and orange sweater Their knitting club grows. And then it grows again. Because WY told WN how much he likes WN's apartment now
He likes all the knitted doilies, the knitted flowers, the throws - it's cosy and welcoming So they invite WY to join their knitting club. WY declares that his first project will be a blue scarf for his husband LZ Naturally, when LZ receives the scarf, he decides to join too
MXY looks around his living room one day, watching everyone either quietly knitting, or whispering to each other over their wool, and smiles. Here, in his home, he's happy to know that he can enjoy something with his friends
He's never been good at social interaction, but here, over some wool and knitting needles, he feels safe and comfortable. There's no pressure to be "on" socially. He can be himself He likes that
This thread is for my wonderful friend @sui, actually a robot cat I hope your day gets better, and that this feels like a virtual hug from me πŸ’—πŸ’—
