So over the next few months, things are going to be a little insane.
Over at Ravelry, I joined a group called the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup (or HPKCHC for short.) The Fall term starts in about 2 hours. The point of this group is to, over the course of the term (3 months), craft ALL THE THINGS and turn them in for points if they fit the theme of the class/Quidditch/detention. They also have long-term project contests called Advanced Studies that last anywhere from 2-4 months called Order Missions (2), OWLs (3), and NEWTs (4). These have stricter rules and must be approved in order to earn points for them. All of the “students” are also split into one of the four houses…I’m a Slytherin. Big news, I’m always a Slytherin. As one of my Ravatars states, “Intelligence without Ambition is like a bird without wings.” Slytherin encourages the KNIT ALL THE THINGS mindset even further by offering additional challenges for completing more than the minimum participation. Plus, there are the Headmistress’s Challenge and the HoH challenge offered by the head of the main board and the head of Slytherin house, respectively.
So what have I gotten myself into? Order of the Silver Serpent First Class (18 classes, Quidditch, Headmistress’s and HoH’s challenge, OWL, and Order Mission in 3 months.) I am insane.
Classes start posting in T-minus 1 hour and 36 minutes. Are you ready for HPKCHC?
