“But to ken that ane's purpose is right, and to make their heart strong, is the way to get through the warst day's darg.”
The Heart of Mid-Lothian
Darg. Looking on Amazon at the new book by Sharon Miller on Love Darg Shetland Shawls, came across the word again.I first encountered it several years ago in a back issue of People's Friend magazine, where they had a Love Darg knitting event - people sent in knitted items to be dsitributed to charities.
Darg is defined as a day's work, or a task worked at and completed within a defined time limit.
A wonderful word, it has many possibilities I think!
