Toggles... and progress.

I'm wondering where everyone has bought their toggles and what size they went with? I'm having a terrible time finding them in real life, so I'll probably buy online but I'm not sure how big I should get. Any input?

As for my CPH (s) .... I started a second one in wool ease for a friend's daughter and have one sleeve done and blocking and the other sleeve is almost done. I hope to cast on for the body (in one piece) later today or tomorrow. I'm placing my bets on not ever finishing my first CPH. Oh, did I forget to mention that little tidbit?! :-) My first is patiently waiting to be finished--second sleeve cap and the hood is all. The yarn scares me. Anyway, here's a photo about half through the first sleeve of #2:

Have a great day!

I got my toggles at Pacific Fabrics and Crafts but I also saw them at Joann's. I think there is an online store. Mine are about 1 1/2 - 2 inches.
