Ever finish someone else's project? Advice?
DS is home from law school for a couple of days to interview. A classmate of his, he told me, is looking for someone to finish the filet crocheted tablecloth his mother had not finished. She has died in recent years. I told my son that I would be happy to finish it, but I would need the pattern and also to know what brand and kind of crochet thread she was using. He has no idea of how large the cloth is going to be or how much has been done since he did not get into details with this young man.
I recently made a filet banquet cloth with size 10 crochet thread, so I know how to do a filet cloth.
But I wonder if we have no idea of what brand and type of cotton thread she had been using, how difficult it might prove to be to get a match when I buy more thread, if I should need to. I suspect if I could figure out if the thread is 100% cotton or not, that would tell me something, and then if it has to be tea dyed to make the color uniform, maybe the yarns would absorb the coloring similarly.
Anyone with any input???? And then there is the whole thing of having a similar tension, etc....
