Each year we follow this amazing race across Alaska. Even though I taught it in my classes this was one of the few school related things I kept doing after retiring from middle school.
I also do a special colorway each year commemorating the race.
There's fiber too.
During the race, on Ravelry, those of us in the Iknitarod choose something challenging to spin &/or knit. This year I chose to knit a sweater for wool-aid.org.
My challenge was to complete the Scrap Shawl Collared Sweater, and if time, a matching hat. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, bulky and some hand dyed hand spun I just happened to have in my burgeoning stash.
