Styrofoam(tm) in Various Shapes and Sizes

I've gotten more requests for this than just about anything else. So, even though I now stick to knitting, crochet and sewing related supplies only, I thought I'd do up a chart to let you all know where you can find the various sizes that are avaialble.

Firstly, balls smaller than one inch in diameter are simply not available. I've looked absolutely everywhere. If shape doesn't really matter, try substituting half a packing peanut instead.
