Karen's Retro Rib Sock Cuffs

Last week I was on steroids for my jaw ache and as soon as I tapered off the pain came back worse than it was. My jaw is not healing from the surgery I had last spring, so I'm going to have additional surgery on Friday.

Do I need a new blog post label "Dental agony"?

Working on a pair of socks for Karen to send off with brother Dave's huge red wonders. I would like to get these mailed out before Dave and Karen's Oregon winter is over.

Pattern: Retro Rib Socks by Evelyn Clark in Winter 2004 Interweave Knits.

Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.

Color: Woodgrain.

Needles: Options 2.50mm circulars.

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette.

Would you recommend this brand for knitting size 13 men's sock? I want to be sure I don't have to worry about running out and I have bought this before but only for a raffle gift. It was sooo beautiful.
