When looking for a name for this pattern I knew I wanted it to be related with sheep, but my inspiration wasn´t working with me. I share my fiber study with my mum, a painter, crocheter and jack of all trades and I asked her for a name related with sheep. She suggested Bolingua.

Bolingua is a “baserri” a basque farm, located just in front of my parents house. It has a field were their sheep roam free nearly all days. They were the first sheep I ever saw when I was a child, my first sheep! So the name fits quite nicely.

Cuando buscaba el nombre de este cuello, sabía que queria que tuviese relación con las ovejas, pero mi inspiración no tenía ganas de colaborar. Comparto mi taller con mi madre, una pintora, ganchillera y manitas en general a la que pregunté que se le ocurría relacionado con las ovejas. Sugirió Bolingua.

Bolingua es un “baserri”, una granja vasca, que se encuentra en la ladera de enfrente de casa de mis padres. Tiene un prado en el que las ovejas suelen pacer libremente casi todos los días. Fueron las primeras ovejas que ví cuando era pequeña, mis primeras ovejas! Así que el nombre quedó decidido.
