Spiral Sock

I have been obsessively knitting, but, every once in a while, I actually complete a project

I had a request for a heel-less sock with a round toe to wear around the house. This pattern with variations has been around for a long time. It has been reproduced many times in various magazines and books, and the pattern is easily found on the web. This sock is a simple 2X2 rib offset by one stitch every 4th row. Knit on #7 11" circulars (changed to DP for the toe) with Wool-Ease.
Minus one skein from stash.

The oldest pattern I found was in this Patons Beehive sock book from 1940. They called it a called it "the new swivel sock".
