英語リスニング - 本文

Adrienne: So we just had Christmas and I see your knitting bag is out, did you knit anything for anyone for Christmas?

Vivian: I started to knit for my granddaughters, but time caught up with me and I was making for them a poncho which consisted of two pieces, two oblong pieces which I will put together and make a poncho.

Adrienne: That sounds pretty I think, but what will it look like when it's finished? Can you describe it?

Vivian: A poncho is sort of like a shawl, only it is closed. You can wear it like a sweater. You pull it over your head but you don't have any arms. You just have the shawl affect.

Adrienne: Oh, I've seen those. Those are actually quite popular now. So what colors did you make?

Vivian: I made a mixture of sand colors that's tan and browns and darker browns, sort of a mixture. It's a nice pretty soft yarn in the same colors. It just blends in.

Adrienne: Oh, sounds great. I'm sure your granddaughter will love that. What else did you start to make?

Vivian: Well, I wanted to make also, I bought some ponchos and I started to put an edging around them but with crocheting, but it didn't look right.

Adrienne: What's crocheting?

Vivian: Crocheting is another needle, single needle, that you stick into the wool, and use a thread and you pull it through and you can make decoration on anything that you have knitted, only you use a different needle, and a different method of decoration, but it didn't look right so I pulled it all out and it was fun trying out those things.

Adrienne: So when will you finish the, all of these projects do you think? Do you have a deadline?

Vivian: Yes, I do, very shortly, I'm almost through.
