Bridge Road is my favorite place in Florida. It’s shaded from the hot sun, and has a low draw bridge that crosses over the Intracoastal Waterway. It makes for a lovely walk that ends right at a small public beach.

Bridge Road is filled with a variety of simple textures and multiple color changes, making it a fun knit.
