The obscure word of the week is dight

This week’s obscure English word is dight. It’s a verb that derives from Middle English and which has several meanings. In a literary sense it means to prepare something for its purpose. However, it also has a couple of dialectical meanings: in Scotland it means to wipe something dry, and it can also mean to winnow corn.

Your challenge: make up a sentence using this word in one of its meanings.
