You told me I had to, so I did: I made a matching tie. I used the pattern and tutorial for the little boy's tie from the Purl Bee. It came together super quick and in one evening I was done. The tie is almost completely hand sewn. If you set up the ironing board in front of the boob tube, you too can make a tie in a night. "Little boy" is a little vague so I didn't know if the tie would fit my son (he's three), but it's actually perfect.
And it was warm enough that they didn't have to cover up their cute outfits with a winter coat. I remember there being many snowy easters when I was a kid. They even got to have an easter egg hunt outside. Yay for crazy midwestern weather!
