Garter stitch is the fabric you get when you don't purl every other row and just knit. It has alternate rows of ridges that hide the v's that are between them. The ridges are sometimes called Purl bumps because when you alternate knit and purl rows, the bumps end up on the "Wrong" side or the Purl side of the work.

Edit: Oy, Ingrid, ya'll are so fast ya' put the rest of us to shame sometimes!
I'm a boy, by the way.
