I'm sitting in the Medford airport dreaming about finishing the hat in my bag. I'm so close, and would have been done three times over during the 3 hours I have been sitting here (with two left to go), but I made an amateur error in packing. I packed my project with more than enough yarn to finish, and yarn to start and finish a second project in case I was on a roll. And I packed stitch markers in case I needed them. And the Size 8 16inch circulars.
What did I forget? Size 8 DPN to finish the top of the hat when I just couldn't spread 12 stitches across 16 inches. AARRRRGGHHHHH!
I also forgot a tapestry needle to weave in the ends, but I'd say that's trivial at this point.
