There shouldnt be a logical answer to use more than one wire for the ground in this case.. If you are interested, maybe this will help you:

Hey guys I really need some help! I just bought 10m of 24awg silver plated copper, and my friend was being very non specific about it being a bad purchase. Could some of you give me an idea of the sonic qualities of silver plated copper? I'm just looking for general sound characteristics before I start on my next project. Thanks!

Cables don't "sound like" anything. (waits for the cable supporters to come out)
 
Nice job on the cables, btw. I have dropped a soldering iron and caught it in midair and burned my fingers really bad.

My cramped apartment forces me to work while my cat runs around. Trying to juggle cat and soldering iron is not easy.

Where does one find good 3.5mm plugs?

 
Some of the site sponsors carry phone plugs, ranging from high-end Oyaide and ViaBlue to the lower end Neutrik and Canare. Otherwise, a search for 'diy 3.5 mm phone plug' will throw you a ton of resources. If you shop around, you can find the Switchcraft 35HD Series plugs for a reasonable price.

hahahhaa... i've imagined snagging the cable on the edge of the table or by my foot and sending the hot soldering iron into my eye... i've got a rather morbid imagination =/

 
A good reminder of why safety glasses are a must when soldering
