I'm trying to knit my Super Easy Leg Warmers from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts as quickly as possible. I am almost constantly cold and I thought these would help quite a bit. They do not, however, knit up as fast as quoted in the book. I spent a good 6-7 hours on them yesterday and am still less than halfway through one. Aargh.
Fortunately, I love the yarn and am enjoying knitting them. I have a feeling that they would move along a little more quickly on circular needles.
