Some really nice icon sets there! I love these minimal, under-stated icons. They work so well on so many projects. iconSweets was a new find for me, downloading that now, can't believe it's free!

Another good set like these are the Mono icons: http://www.tutorial9.net/downloads/108-mono-icons-huge-set-of-minimal-ic...

Yeah, I couldn't believe IconSweets either. Quality stuff. They set the bar high and then gave away the bar.
