I’d go through the #2 pine and find the cleanest stuff you can. You can cut knots out depending on your cutlist (there will be stuff on the shelves and a cushion and blankets on the top, so you may never even see any knots). Take the money you save on lumber and buy diapers or put it in a college fund. If money is no object and you want an heirloom piece, then go poplar. You could substitute MDF for the shelf panels if you want to even out the cost.
