Your assignment for this month will be to investigate a witch or wizard who is named after something astronomical. You are not limited to the Black family and should name your witch or wizard and the cosmological event or object they are named after. There are two crafting options.
Option 1: Craft something that can be associated with the witch or wizard you studied.
Option 2: Make something inspired by the celestial object that witch or wizard is named after.

Charms- Craft something you’ve forgotten about. For example it could be a pattern you forgot existed, some fiber that escaped your mind, or a technique that you failed to recall, as long as there’s something you’ve forgotten.

DADA
For your homework this month, in order to honour her and inventors of other spells, we’d like you to be inventive too – or honour someone else who is! You can submit something crafted of your own design (published or not) or a design from one of our current HPKCHC students.

Herbology-
Students, we are asking for you to look inside your heart and create something that you can give to a person that you are thankful for having in your life. We are open to having non Ravelry based projects this month as we do not want to stifle your creative and thankful spirits. Non Ravelry based projects do need to be approved, so requests need to reach our desks by Midnight PST on Friday, November 21.

Jessica- spin

Potions
This month, we would like for you to be inspired by Dr. Ubbly’s Oblivious Unction by crafting something that will bring comfort. This could be done by making something for charity or perhaps a gift for a friend or loved one. Whatever you think will bring joy to another soul, comforting them in some fashion.
Allena – sewing bags
Jessica

Transfiguration
For your homework this month, we would like for you conjure multiples of the same type of item. Items that normally come in pairs such as socks or mitts, or two or more of the same type of item such as two hats, two dishcloths, two toys, two shawls, two hexipuffs etc. Spinners or Dyers will need to produce two or more finished skeins. Weavers will need to produce two or more of the same type of item. Your items do not need to be the same color, size, from the same pattern or the from the same fiber, but they do need to be two of the same type. Please, no mixing and matching item types.

DADA The Shield Charm, Protego

please show that you have mastered the Shield Charm by creating something that could physically deflect objects and spells or that represents the blue of the shield. Your goal is to create a physical barrier that can deflect objects not simply attempt to charm something to provide protection. For example, you could use a blanket to block an attack of the Jelly-Legs jinx from a fellow dueling student. Or maybe a lace scarf or a web of handspun yarn could block a ball hurled at you in a dodgeball game in the Great Hall. Creative use of objects as shields is encouraged but please no charming of objects alone to achieve a shield.
Allena
Jessica- Weave something?!!

Herbology- Canning

show us the results of your canning experiments! You might knit a pickle green shawl with seed beads, spin a textured art yarn just like your favorite chunky salsa, or dye some delicious raspberry jam red yarn.
Allena
Jessica- spin

Muggle Studdies – submarines

1) “A sky of blue, a sea of green, in our yellow submarine.” Craft in blue, green, or yellow.
2) Craft a beetle.
Allena
Jessica- spin

Potions Polyjuice Potion,

craft a disguise or part of a disguise. This can be a disguise that helps you pose as someone else, blend in with Muggles, or even to hide from Halloween mayhem.
Allena
Jessica

Transfiguration to practice avis and avifors by producing birds OR bats.

You may produce actual 3-dimensional representations or use patterns which clearly suggest birds or bats, their feathers, or flight. This is open to interpretation provided you supply a clear explanation of just how your creation reflects the birds or bats. You may use any craft to do this, but you will have to create the birds or bats yourself; you will not be permitted to merely craft with a bird or bat-printed fabric
