Summer's Last Ballband

An ode to the ballband warshrags of summer (with apologies to Danny and Sandy):

Summer ballbands, had me a blast
Summer ballbands, knit up so fast
Dishcloth cotton cheap as can be
Mason-Dixon, the book for me
Summer days, knitting away
But oh...back to work and it bites

Well-a, well-a, well-a , uh!...OK, I'll stop now. Thanks, Ann and Kay, for a summer of carefree knits.

Dudes, I never said I was stopping with the ballbands...just mourning the end of summer (and for me, back to school is it).

LOL - You gave me a good laugh with that one, Terri! I, too, am dealing with the back-to-work-blues, dreading the hordes of students who will inevitably demand different classes, different teachers and different lives. *sigh* Wanna trade jobs? ;-)

Now I can't get that song out of my head.

2006 was the second Summer of Ballbands for me....
