VERDICT
The red buttons are a GO. My husband also likes them best...for the size (bigger) and color. He commented that the small antique gold buttons look a little bit like some coins dropped onto the front of my sweater. Too smallish.

The red buttons were an overwhelming FAVORITE of most folks who took time to give their opinion.

So RED it is!

I seamed the sleeve caps to the armholes today, and right now it's laying on the blocking table with wet terry cloths under and on top of the seams. In the morning I'll remove the terry cloths and allow the seams to finish off and air dry. Hopefully by Saturday afternoon I will be able to sew on my buttons...and wear this puppy to church on Sunday!

Thanks for your help!

I can't decide between 1 and 4, but I am leaning toward 1. Regardless of the buttons, the sweater will be lovely! I look forward to seeing the finished project!
