I went shopping again today, at Goodwill, and for 10$ this is my haul.
The red ones at the top are bumpy or boucle like in texture. The size is not specified but they must be 5 or 6. Red is not usually my colour but 6 - 70g balls plus that bit of purple for 4$, how can I pass that up? And tucked in the middle are 3 balls of cotton, 2 variegated and one plain blue to make the donation hats.
There was also a half skein of Phentex. Awful stuff. Grannies used to make slippers out of it. They (the slippers) never wore out ( unfortunately, as they were always ugly). I will give that to my husband to use to tie up the tomatoes next summer.
