Our Dad still talks about the socks that our mother made for him years ago. Every so often, when his supply of socks ran low, she would buy some Kroy sock yarn and start knitting. She darned the worn socks, too, which is something that really isn't worth doing for a store bought sock.
On the other side of the needle, socks are a relatively quick knit. A ball or 2 of even the best quality yarn is still pretty inexpensive and there's enough variety in the patterning of socks to keep the most jaded knitter happy.
