    I bought some crochet thread at a thrift store, but it doesn't have labels or any way to find the size. How do you suggest I find out what size it is? Is there somewhere online that I can compare it to a pic of true size thread?

    If not, I'm going to have to take pieces to the store and compare them.

    Amie you do need to take a sample to your local craft store and make comparisons.  If you try to do it online you can't see a true representation.  The other way is to make guage swatches using different needles.  Based on thread you already have you could estimate if you need to use a larger or smaller needle.  I think that would be very time consuming.  Good luck on your project.
