I suppose you can, but why? What's wrong with using one circular needle? Some people use 2 circs to knit small diameter items, but a sleeve doesn't strike me as small diameter (maybe except the bottom, or sleeves for baby items).

I'm confused

?2Circs?
The reason for 2 sleeves on 2 circs is there will be no sides to seam up.
One of the ladies at the LYS says it's a technique she's want to try.

Using one circular avoids seams to. You'd just work in the round.

Well Ekgheiy, You've got me thinking--I guess I'm thinking about having to do something different to the underside of the sleeve and the top of the sleeve. And by having them divided on the 2 circs, it would be easier to do. Maybe I'm wrong, though. So, what your saying is do both on 1 circ and use 2 different skeins (or use different ends of the skein)?

OOOhhhh!!! I think I understand your questions now

You want to make both sleeves at the same time and avoid seams?? Well duh!! Sorry I can be a dud sometimes Yes, you can put one sleeve on one circular needle and the other sleeve on a separate circular needle. I'm sorry, for some reason, I thought you meant to use two circs on ONE sleeve. Don't know where I got that idea from ...

that's what I was thinking too!!!! I didn't want to butt in (i feel like a real Dumasky when I don't understand questions)
anyway, clsimmons, the sleeves look great. I like the yarn colors!
