Hello and welcome to Bad Cats, Good Knits, my tales of fibrous delight and feline misdemeanors.  I’m Allie, an accountant and knitting enthusiast in Cumberland, Maine.  I’ve been knitting for about 11 years now with no end in sight.  Sweaters are my great love (after my husband, Walker, of course) and I am so, so, so excited that fall is finally here and I can show mine off again!

I am also excited to announce that I am now accepting new tech editing clients!  I’ve finished Joeli’s learn to tech edit course and have helped a few editing clients with an eye to take on more.   I may be new to the game, but my extensive experience with test and sample knitting combined with my background in accounting make for the ideal editing temperament and eye for detail.  For more information, please check out my Tech Editing Services page or feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

Now enough of business and onto the good stuff: cat pictures

Meet Arty.   He’s the goofy one.


How cute is he in that little sweater??  Poor Arty isn’t very good at grooming himself and frequently gets mats.  Last winter, they got so bad that we had to have him shaved and since it was January, the poor thing was freezing!  Perfect opportunity for more sweater knitting, no?  He was much happier after we got that sweater on him, or at least that’s what I’m going to keep telling myself.  This is what he looks like most of the time:

Meet Branwen.  She’s the princess.

She is living proof that tortie-tude is a real thing.  Branwen must be loved and adored at all times.  A lack of attention is a deep tragedy and she will let you know if you’re deviating from her strict schedule.  However, despite the tyrannical facade, she is a little cuddle bug who loves nothing more than curling up with her favorite humans.

You’ll never be able to convince me that there is a better companion than a cat.

Until next time,
