Yes, I've heard all of the criticisms: the twist is backwards, not the right offset between the two coils, not enough base pairs per twist... But really this trumps all objections - you recognize instantly what it is.

Wow, that is really cool! Neat tutorial on knitting twisted tubes, too. I'll have to give that a shot sometime (when I'm not knitting my figers off for the holidays!). Thanks for linking to this!

That is awesome! I know exactly what it is.....but I have no idea what base pairs are :-)
That would be really cool to make as a toy for my little one...hummm now to go find yarn

I LOVE these combinations of science/art/function!
In fact, I am requesting permission to use the images of the DNA helix and one of the finished scarves from your website in a book that I am writing entitled Peace Fibres: Stitching a Soulful World. In it, I enlist fibre work as metaphor and manifestation of harmonious relationship to self, others, and the larger world. I would use these photographs to illustrate the merging of science and art through fibre work.
May I use the images? Please advise of any fees involved. I would, of course, cite the artist(s) and your website as source.
Peace Fibres will be self published through Integral Press. I anticipate printing in early 2011, with an initial run of 1200.
Thanks for considering my request. I look forward to your response.
