Suggest a yarn

I just found out I am to be an auntie! So of course I have to start a project RIGHT AWAY. After all the kid will be born in early December, omg dont you know that is like tomarrow??? :rofling:

In any case I found this pattern in Amy’s free patterns section.
It uses a yarn that is no longer made. But oh boy it sure is cute!
Anyone have a suggestion for a suitable alternative yarn?

It lets you click for substitutions. I’ve also seen other terry yarns although the name eludes me at the moment. That is a cute pattern. Congrats!
