Knit For Charity & Knit N Crochet Groups

Hello to all the members of

Knit N Crochet – Lakes Entrance and Knit For Charity East Gippsland!

We will be having our usual monthly meetings at Neighbourhood House beginning in February. I will let you know details when they are finalized. In the meantime we will hold at least one “Knit and Natter” at Lakes Bowls Club in January. Dates to be confirmed at a later stage. Just wanted to let you know we are still here, and big things planned for the New Year.

At our first meeting we will discuss ways and means for keeping track on what we donate (for those who do, and please, it is NOT a requirement to attend our meetings that you donate, it is individual choice only).

We will also learn how to make a “Magic Invisible Knot” for joining yarns! If you would like to participate in this short tutorial, please bring along two skeins of yarn or two lengths of yarn so that you can follow along as we demonstrate.

We also hope to be able to provide sharing of techniques for both knitting and crochet, so if you have some expertise in any special or helpful techniques, please let us know – we can all learn new things! Also if there is something in particular you would like to learn, let us know and we’ll see about getting someone to show you, or point you in the direction of some classes or whatever.

Our Group Chat on Facebook Messenger is here:

Please feel free to join the chat there, all members of both groups very welcome! Great place to ask questions, share thoughts and get to know other group members.

Looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year! Stay safe everyone!


Heading out for lunch at Johnsonville today. While sitting in the car I noticed so many cars heading towards Lakes – towing everything it’s possible to tow. I got my phone and shot a short video – with disappointing results.

This is our favourite haunt for food – always good and the coffee always hot.

And this is our favourite spot on the river for lunch and/or afternoon tea.
