ENTER! Misc. Avatar Contest - Spirals

Thank you to everyone for your votes! I was surfing some knitting boards on Pinterest (a.k.a. "crack cocaine") when a humble pair of socks gave me the inspiration for this week's contest. The theme is SPIRALS, in nature, manmade, the works. Have fun with it, and I look forward to seeing your entries. The poll will go up on Monday.

Standard miscellaneous contest rules, no media, and standard BBS avatar rules, 150x150 pixels max, 140 KB max.

Here's my entry, Celtic spirals:

Sigh. Beaten to my first two choices.

Poppycock. Hand knitted socks are more important.

You're probably right. My socks seem to be doing better than my DNA. Darn telomeres.

One of my favorite toys growing up, the Spirograph:

Locutus comes up trumps again. Now I regret no longer having a Spirograph in the house.
