This is my take on "is it worth it." I LOVE hand knit socks. I'm willing to pay $18 on beautifully hand dyed unique sock yarns. For me it is all worth it to have gorgeous unique socks. I enjoy having lovely things in my life. Even when the "ordinary" will do. For instance I have a favorite pottery mug that I like to sip my tea from. It was hand thrown. Sure, I could use a $1 mug bought at the Dollar Tree. It would hold my tea just as nicely. But I live the feel, texture, color and size of my hand thrown pottery mug. It's worth it to you only if you value it as such.
