I, too, would go with Emerald~ it's a bit more classic (and having experience putting in a lot of buttons on a cardi, I've come to the conclusion that less (buttons) is MORE
) and would be more comfy as well, post baby. I know I wouldn't have wanted to deal with all the buttons-I mean after the cardigan was finished~I was so tired all the time! LOL.
Good luck in whichever you choose!~they're both pretty!
