The recipe calls for sock yarn and size 2 needles. There's no gauge listed, one of the huge benefit of tube socks, as long as the material is tight enough. If you knit tightly you may want size 3, if you knit loose you may want size 1 or 0.

Since you're working with circs, you might want to check to make sure the cable is small enough to work comfortably on. Just knit a small swatch of a few rows and slide it onto the cable, then pull it to the other end.
