One can only cite the elegant appearance of Garter stitch. It forms beautiful crinkly ridges, which are handsome in themselves. They can be employed horizontally or vertically or both and enable the structure of offbeat knitted pieces to be visible and organically decorative. I like to think that the very first knitter, doodling with sticks and sinews at the sunny entrance to his cave, or peering at his knitting by the flickering firelight,- doodled with, or peered at, Garter stitch; the bread and cheese of knitting, the basic stitch-surely the prototype.',- Elizabeth Zimmermann (a recently discovered hand-written quote)
