I LOVE these!!!! Do you sell them? Will you make any on commission? If you were able to talk to some of my friends (the ones who regularly shop with me) they'll tell you I have a thing for socks. I am ALWAYS buying socks and I'm always on the lookout for ones I consider lovely or beautiful. It's probably because I always seem to have cold feet. I have a condition people are born with called Raynaud's Syndrome and it's basically a circulation system that's a bit wacky. It's not an illness, a disease or anything you can change or do something about. It's just one of those things people get stuck with. If you can reply or contact me I'd be interested in purchasing some. Thanks! Have a great Christmas.
