The missions https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/hp-knitting-crochet-house-cup/3914101/1-25#8

Headmistress Challenge
Each student worker may complete 5 of the craft projects in the closets that were started BEFORE May 1st, 2019.
Ravelry & Non-Ravelry crafts are acceptable for this challenge. We are only accepting WIPs this challenge, and they must have been started prior to May 1st, 2019. Please submit each project in a separate post. This challenge will be open May 1 – July 31st.

Quidditch:
For this match, hone the finer points of your skills. Pay attention to the details, work on being more accurate. For your score, please tell us how your project required accuracy.
Match 4: July 10-29.
18 base points
Ravelry crafts ONLY
Awesomeness Points are in play
HPKCHC yardage bonus in play
Four (4) Bonus Points for completing all four matches
No yardage minimum!

CLASSES:

Astronomy -This month, your professors would like you to study nebulae. Please choose a picture of a nebula and create something inspired by it. The picture of the nebula must be included in your homework submission.
Non-Ravelry crafts will be accepted

Charms Prompt: Craft something to cheer you, or someone else, up; or craft something yellow.
FAQ
Q: If choosing the color option, how much of the project needs to be yellow?
A: At least 50%.
Q: What counts as yellow?
A: Gold counts as yellow. Buttery colors count. Tans do not count. If you think it is yellow, it probably is. When in doubt, there is always the cheering up option!
Q: Do gifts and charity items count?
A: Of course! I think anyone would be cheered up by a lovely handmade gift.

Consumer and Family Science Task: Show us what’s in your vault! Craft a treasure worth keeping or a gift to be treasured; or, craft with a material you’ve been hoarding saving treasuring. Be sure to tell us why your treasure is valuable to you.
Non-Ravelry crafts are happily accepted!

Flying
For your assignment, please craft an item inspired by one of these four alternate uses for your broom. In your submission, tell us which alternate use you’re inspired by and why.
PLAYING WITH PETS
LAUNDRY AND HOUSE-CLEANING
CARRYING SHOPPING
SEASONAL DECORATING

Herbology Harvesting
Harvesting the berries will take several steps to ensure proper care, handling and storage.” “First we have to be sure that they are ripe. Next we need to pick them properly to avoid damaging the plants. Finally we should put the filled containers someplace cool to keep them fresh.”

For your assignment this month: Craft something with more than one step. Please explain the steps you used. It could be something made of many pieces that need to be joined, uses more than one technique, or adding embellishments like buttons or embroidery.

Muggle StudiesFor this month’s assignment, we’d like you to craft something to wear shopping or something that you would use to carry your muggle artifacts back to Hogwarts with you. If you intend to wear something that is not normally worn, we’ll need to see a picture of it being modeled. We’ll also need to see a demonstration picture if you use a nontraditional item to carry your treasures in.
Remember, if you successfully complete (no partials) all 3 Muggle Studies classes this term you will be awarded an extra bonus point.
Non-Ravelry crafts will be accepted if they fit the prompt

Potions
Our surmise is that you strengthen yourselves and your potions by simply knowing yourself. This increased knowledge lends strength to all aspects of potions composition, from how you use your wands to the spellwork you choose, to the ingredients and amounts that work correctly for you. To take your potions abilities to the next level, we want you to compose your own potion by demonstrating to us that you have increased your knowledge of that most volatile of all ingredients: yourself.”
Prompt: Craft your own potion. It can be simple or fiendishly complicated. You may craft your own potion either by using an available pattern or by creating your own design.
Non-Ravelry crafts will be accepted if they fit the prompt; prior approval is not required. Please review the non-Rav craft guidelines before submitting your project.

Transfiguration For this month, transform a match into a needle.
Do this by using metal materials including metal beads, wire, stellina or similar fibers. We are not looking for metal colors.
Only needle based non-Ravelry projects will be accepted.
FAQ:
Can I make stitch markers/progress keepers? While we love stitch markers as much as the next witch, they are not what we are looking for in this class.
What do you mean by needle based non-Ravelry crafting? We are looking for projects traditionally made with a needle like sewing, embroidery and cross stitch to name a few applicable crafts (this list is not exhaustive).
Will needle felting count? Yes. We look forward to seeing your craft.

Each student worker may complete 5 of the craft projects in the closets that were started BEFORE May 1st, 2019.
Ravelry & Non-Ravelry crafts are acceptable for this challenge. We are only accepting WIPs this challenge, and they must have been started prior to May 1st, 2019. Please submit each project in a separate post. This challenge will be open May 1 – July 31st.

Quidditch:
Match 2: May 19 – June 16.
For this training session/match we would like for you to demonstrate Endurance. Go for the yardage and craft something of at least 150 yards OR get prepared and craft something that would be useful for you during one of your long training runs.
You can earn 23 base points for this match. Awesome points are also available; yardage bonus is in play as per HPKCHC rules.

23 base points
Ravelry crafts ONLY
Awesomeness Points are in play
HPKCHC yardage bonus in play
No yardage minimum!

CLASSES:

Astronomy – Dark Matter
For your homework, we expect you to craft something using regular, baryonic matter rather than dark matter, of course. However, you can honor the spirit of dark matter by using matter that is hard to see, or matter that came to you unexpectedly. You know how you go to a yarn store or a fiber festival and somehow come out of there with much more than you remember putting in your basket? Or maybe you did some calculations to make sure you had enough materials for your project and then didn’t really notice how much you had until you pulled it out at home? Or you could craft something where you didn’t really realize at first how big it was. If that doesn’t catch your fancy, you could craft something inspired by dark energy. Since dark energy makes everything expand faster and faster, you could craft something that expands, or something that expanded while you crafted it. Basically, explain how your project is inspired by dark matter or dark energy, and we will love it
Craft something inspired by dark energy or dark matter. But make sure we can see it!
Non-Ravelry crafts will be accepted if they fit the prompt; prior approval is not required.

Charms Meteolojinx Recanto
Prompt: Craft something soothing, or something blue or grey.
FAQ
Q: what exactly do you mean by “soothing?”
A: You tell us! What is soothing to one might not be to another. Just explain how your project soothes you.
Q: Can I use another color to represent the rain?
A: No, we are only accepting blue and grey as colors to represent the rain.
Q: If choosing the color option, how much of my project must be blue or grey?
A: Your project must be at least 50% blue, grey, or a combination of the two.
Q: What counts as blue or grey?
Silver counts as grey, turquoise counts as blue, etc. If you think it is blue or grey, it probably is. When in doubt, there is always the soothing option!

Consumer and Family ScienceFood Production by growing our own fruits and vegetables.
Task: Craft something inspired by your chosen fruit or vegetable. This may be its size, shape, texture, or color. Earn an EXTRA BONUS POINT by including an inspiration photo of your fruit or veggie.
Non-Ravelry crafts happily accepted.
FAQ
Q: Does my project need to be a replica of the fruit or vegetable?
A. You may create a replica, or incorporate an image of your fruit/vegetable, or you may simply craft an object that is inspired by its size, shape, texture, or color.
Q: Is an inspiration photo required?
A. No, an inspiration photo is optional. However, including this photo with your class submission will earn you one bonus point in addition to your yardage and awesomeness bonuses. This should be a photo of the actual fruit/veggie that inspired your project. If your project is inspired by a magical fruit/veggie known only in the HP wizarding world, then you may use an image of a recognizable drawing/painting of that magical food.
Q: May I earn an extra bonus point for the inspiration photo even if my project isn’t finished?
A. Yes, partial projects are eligible for the extra bonus provided that the inspiration photo is included with your submission prior to the class deadline.
Q: Are “fantasy” fruits/vegetables that are unknown to Muggles acceptable for this class?
A. Any fruit/vegetable known to the witches and wizards of the Harry Potter world, whether or not known to Muggles, would be acceptable. So, Derigible Plums and Gurdyroots would be welcomed sources of inspiration. Fantasy fruits/vegetables outside of HP canon are not available for planting in our Hogwarts garden and would not be suitable sources of inspiration.

Flying
Aerobatic training enhances a flyer’s ability to recover from unusual flight conditions, and thus we consider it an element of flight safety training, especially for those of you who volunteer for the Order. Most aerobatic maneuvers involve rotation of your broom about its longitudinal (roll) axis…or lateral (pitch) axis. Other maneuvers, such as a spin, displace the broom about its vertical (yaw) axis.
For this prompt, we would like you to practice your crafting aerobatics and bring out your unusual moves. Knitters and crocheters, add stitch patterns or embellishments to your work. Weavers, use pick-up or any draft but tabby. Spinners, try a new or complex plying technique. Dyers, use multiple colors in the same object. For those who look for a number, the number is ‘42’. More details will be provided in the FAQ.

FAQs
Knitting – Stockinette, reverse stockinette, garter do not count as stitch patterns when used alone.
Crochet – Alternating rows/rounds of different stitch height do not count as a stitch pattern when used alone.
Spinners – Explain why the yarn structure you have created is an unusual or complex move for you.
Knitting/crochet – Embellishment is allowed instead of actual stitch patterns but must meet the same quantity value (42%).
Stitch patterns and embellishment may be mixed on the same object. Total amount must meet the quantity value.
Knitting/crochet – Colorwork patterns (created with separate strands of yarn) will be accepted as long as more than one color is present on a row/round. (Slip-stitch colorwork is acceptable.) The number is still 42. Stripes are not acceptable.

Herbology Pruning
Pruning is the cutting away of dead or overgrown branches so that there will eventually be a healthier growth, which produces more fruit
Cutting back is only temporary. Eventually, each plant will produce more fruit than it would have had if it had not been pruned
Your assignment is:
Craft something you have made before, but this time craft it in a smaller size OR craft an item that is less than 100 yards.

Muggle Studies
For this month’s assignment, craft a “gift” using 200 yards or more. If spinning, your singles need to be a minimum of 200 yards.
Reminder: If you complete all three Muggle Studies assignments this term, you will receive a bonus point.
FAQ:
Question: Does my crafted item have to be an actual gift?
Answer: We are not requiring you to give your item away as a gift for this month’s assignment. This could be an item that you give to yourself or intend to give to someone else in the future.
Question: Do partials need to be 200 yards?
Answer: Yes. We expect all Homework to be 200 yards whether completed or partial.

Potions The Sleeping Draught
Prompt: Brew a Sleeping Draught to cure your nightmares. Craft something purple, OR an item you use while sleeping.
Non-Ravelry crafts will be accepted if they fit the prompt; prior approval is not required.

Transfiguration Felifors
For your homework this month: craft an item inspired by the characteristics of a cat or a cauldron. Please note we are not focusing on colors this month, we are studying characteristics.
Non-ravelry crafts WILL be accepted this month.
FAQ
What if I want to make a black scarf or a ginger colored pair of socks?
We are not accepting projects inspired by color, instead we what you to focus on the characteristics of a cauldron or cat. Be sure to explain how your homework meets the prompt.
Do I have to craft something inspired by a cauldron and a cat?
No, either one is fine.
Cats like to chase birds. Can I make something related to a bird?
While we appreciate the creativity, this is a bit too far of a reach to be accepted for this class.
Can I make a cat toy?
This would work. We don’t mind “in action” photos either!
