Orange peel effect


I havn't modelled in XSI for about a year but I need to model a spiral around a sphere starting at the bottom and finishing at the top like Orange peel but just the orange peel and not the sphere. I was just wondering what would be the best way to do it?

I know I have to create a curve and then extrude along it but its getting the curve to follow the shape of the sphere which is the problem.
