So in essence, you're saying that making it yourself is not cheaper than buying it, but what you get from DIY is (a) better quality or something that's not otherwise obtainable (b) the sense of satisfaction and appeasement of the creative urge and (c) a useful skill set for TEOTWAWKI.

Which is exactly why you should buy decent quality ingredients, whether its bread flour or sock yarn. Doesn't mean you shouldn't shop around and get the best price possible, in fact that's exactly what you should be doing.

I bought 2 skeins of Cherry Tree Hill Possum Sock from DBNY. I decided not to use it for socks because it's hand wash only. I'm using it for a scarf/shawl thing called Herbivore and it's coming up beautifully.

Yes - that is EXACTLY what I am saying. If you are going to say that buying quality yarn is out because you can buy a finished (CRAP) object cheaper, then you should apply the same thing to EVERYTHING.

Ergo....buy wool. :lol:
