yes. You might want to look up "magic loop" or knitting with two circulars first - some people will use really short circulars, but I personally prefer to go with Magic Loop technique for all my in-the-round knitting.

As a SET circular knitter (SET being two matched size circulars) I will add this attachment below. I'd recommend two different colors of the same size thread/yarn to avoid confusing the two skeins while doing this below:

Especially look up the invisible join in the Search hyperlink above. I always add one more st than the needed CO amount for in-the-round work. You sl that extra st onto the working needle, st 1 (I prefer 2 with the number I CO with, for the FIRST row) , PSSO. Continue st in pattern for the rib pattern of the cuff for the amount recommended by the pattern (or a minimum of 10 rows for a babies sock).

There is going to be a workshop on KP using the magic loop. The workshops are organized by Designer1234. You can find a list of the workshops, when they start and who is going to lead them. Just click on hime at the top of the page and scroll down and you will see a listing for the workshops.
