If there is one thing we love here at N&A, It’s women who kick royal ass. And, seeing as the History Channel epic started this month, what better way to celebrate this than dedicating Thursdays to the warrior women of Vikings. Today we will be focusing on my personal fave, Siggy, as well as a viking lucet DIY.
–Spoilers for both seasons –
When her husband lost the battle against Ragnar, she murdered her daughter’s husband (who was loyal to Earl Haraldson) and defected to Ragnar’s side. She then integrated herself into the Lothbrook home, as a slave and then as Rollo Lothbrook’s lover.
This doesn’t mean she is a villain in this story, not by a long shot. As I said before, she is loyal only to those who deserve it. In her eyes, Ragnar Lothbrook is the real bad guy. She has watched him destroy, not only her life, but his own family. She cares for Ragnar’s family and will do what she can for them, even if it means getting rid of Ragnar.
STEP 1: To start, Thread the tail of your chain from back to front through the hole. If your make shift lucet does not have a hole, that’s fine. It’s not that important, it just keeps the thread in place while you get a flow going.
STEP 3: Wrap your thread around the right prong.
STEP 5: Flip your lucet so that your left prong becomes the right prong. Repeat Steps 3 and 4. This is basically the pattern you will be following for the rest of the chain. Just wrapping, tugging, and pulling. Just remember to hold the tail in place and to pull tightly. I have also found that sometimes the thread gets stuck, what I do to combat this is pull a bit on the left prong loop before tightening the tail. It helps the thread fall in place much smoother.
STEP 6: When your cord is to its desired length, carefully take it off the “lucet.” thread the remaining yard through the two loops and pull tight.
