I'm a newbie too, but I know a lot of people like the yarn on knitpicks.com. Would it work? You can compare the weight of the yarn in the pattern to the weights of the yarns on knitpicks.com and maybe find one. I hope someone else can help more. I just wanted to know someone read your post! :D

I think that as long as you can match the weight/gauge you'll be fine.

Don't quote me on that though!

Try one of these yarns

Do a google search for fortissima sock yarn -- think you'll find something that works.
