Alan: You are correct. #69 Nylon thread has about 6300 yards per pound, and #92 Nylon has about 5000 yards per pound, which makes it noticeably heavier, but not thick. (The difference in Polyester thread is 6500 yards for #69 and 4800 yards for #92.) You won't need a different needle for 69 as compared to 92.
