Spiral Socks in Toreador Colourway

I've started, how about you? I wanted something really mindless and easy to work up the Toreador colourway with and when talking to a customer for my sister site, she suggested a spiral heel-less sock (thanks Darcy!). You keep working the spiral over and over until you have the sock long enough and then you do your toe decreases like usual - the pattern is in the right sidebar if anyone's interested (Socks without Heels). Apparently with the spiraling of the pattern, that will help the sock to stay up - we shall see!

Looks like Starry Night has quickly taken a lead for September's colourway! Wonderful colours! Everyone has until the 15th to vote...so register your choice as soon as you can.

Oh, vote for The Wave! Imagine socks for the men in your life in those manly cool blues, whites and greys. Very versatile colors. Very masculine!

I voted for the wave, the colors are great. I haven't had a chance to work on August's yarn yet (I've been working on birthday presents) but it won't be long!
