K, I borrowed this from someone's blog.
the middle is in stockinette, which makes the ridges and valleys I mentioned even more noticeable (I hope.) If you line up the stockinette rows (each row is an upside-down V) by the bordering garter stitch, you'll see how one is next to a "valley" and the other is a "ridge". Hope this is helpful!

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
