I have to say, that in recent weeks I have become more and more of a fan of Etsy.com. There are just so many good designers selling their own products, its quite refreshing, and inspiring.
These lace-up crocheted socks, by ilusoria, are brilliant (although me being a guy, I cant say I'd buy them for myself, but I can think of more than a number of girls I know, that would love them).
Also my Etsy store will be opening soon. very soon.
