En Garter!

The stigma of garter stitch
It’s too simple, too basic, too boring… a monkey could do it, so how could you be proud of it?  BAHHHH!  It’s the fundamental knitted fabric.
It’s what you’d teach a newbie.
It creates a perfectly-behaved fabric that doesn’t roll/curl
It tames wacko colorways
It eats up yardage so you can use up crap yarn fast
Jane wonders: why is is called garter stitch?
