hmm I use another way, simpler I recon:

step1. give your object outline of e.g.3pt,
step2. duplicate your object and make copy's outline 1 pt
repeat to make even more parallels

so you'll have two exactly parallel lines. Advantage is that you don't have extra curve nodes, outline is rendered dynamically, and the other point is that contour tool is very buggy and sloooow on complex objects such as several words in complex font or maybe paragraph of text.
