Independent Designer Feature: Angler's Loop Socks

We've known about and admired the Angler's Loop Socks {web link} {ravelry link}, knit by Andrea Mules, of Knitting by Bicycle, out of Canopy Fingering in Laguna for a while now, but can't seem to figure out why it took us so long to feature them!

Named after the sailor's knot that forms a fixed loop, the socks are inspired by  sailor's knots and life on a boat.  The socks begin with a 2 x 2 ribbing that flow beautifully into an intricate cable panel along the back of the sock. The foot and leg feature a wide ribbing, for optimum ease of fit and comfort.

Socks are the perfect project for this time of year - their portability makes them easy to carry around and pick up in moments of free time, and the Canopy Fingering is the perfect blend of fibers, creating a fabric with warmth and softness.
