does using different ply's matter?
right now, i'm knitting a green shawl with 8 ply wool. i've just bought some more wool and suddenly realised i bought 12 ply instead of 8. does it matter or should i not worry about it and use it anyway?

i'm very new to knitting so i apologise if my questions are bit on the silly side!!
