My dictionary says that bias means "A line or cut across a fabric that is not at right angles to a side of the fabric" or "Slanting diagonally across the grain of a fabric"
So my guess is that instead of the garter stitch ridges going parallel to your needles, they'd be going on a diagonal.
I'm a boy, by the way.
