I'm making a pair for my girlfriend's birthday. Since her birthday was yesterday I was trying to figure out how I couldmake these go faster.

The GREATEST thing I''ve discovered is that I didn't have to go through with a spare needle and pick up stitches on the inside of the cuff and do a 3NBO. Instead, for every stitch, I just lifted the bottom loop from the inside of the cuff up onto the LH needle, and knit it together with the stitch already there, and THEN bound off. It's easier to work than a 3NBO (for me), AND really fast.

Im not sure if this will work for the second sole, but I'm going to try it anyway.
