I hope this was OK


I want to run this past you all and see if it was Kosher. I had a single gang box with a single pole switch in it. I tapped power from a light on the same circuit which went to another light controlled by a couple of three way switches. I changed that single gang box to a double gang and put the end of run three way in it, it works fine. Anythig wrong with this?

Thanks, I heard somewhere that a circuit should not leave a j box and then return to it, but I guess that doesn't apply to a couple of switches.
