For a table runner, though, the double-stranding would be awfully thick; I was making a neck scarf for a community service project where protection from the cold is paramount. Is the table runner just for deco, or will tableware be placed on it? If it's too thick, the tableware will probably wobble on the double-stranding....

it's going to be for a chest that has a tv on it. he wants something to keep the tv from scratching the chest. im not double stranding either. only thing that i am worried about is that it might be a little too slippery :\
