Before the camping trip I realized that 1.) I would probably not be driving and 2.) if so, then I could knit in the car. So I looked around for a small accessory-type project and landed on a knitted tie (using this pattern). 
No, it is not for me. But it’s not a sweater, so I’m hoping to avoid any “sweater curses.”  And no, I haven’t worked on it since the car ride home.
