Perhaps. There are other ways of reinforcing socks, e.g., using linen st. for the soles, but I think the nylon thread is going to make more of a difference. I had a couple of pairs of handknit socks that lasted about 2 years, but considering how much work goes into them, I'd really like them to last much longer. Once I have a sock wardrobe in place (14 pairs), I'd like to knit only 2 or 3 new pairs a year, so I have lots of time to knit other things.
