Don't under price your hand-styled socks! Designer socks are bringing in big bucks! Some look like something sold at any outdoor store.
DH says mine are easily worth $200 and he is right, I knit so slowly, I have way too many hours in them but I knit in the evening when I was just hanging out on the internet and when I am riding in the car. I have reclaimed time. ;)
Oh, if you really want people to notice your socks, make sure you have shoes that show them off. Comfort and style meet in the new Mary Jane fitness style shoes. I chose the budget version from Kmart at 19.99. ;)
