stupid ? for the day - stockinette/stocking/garter stitch
I've been sparing you all my little dumb questions, so here's one for old time's sake.

Is there a reason that these stitches have those names? of course, i think garter belt and stockings, but were these really the stitch patterns used to create these items back in the day, hence giving them this name? i googled but had no luck.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
