Jane Austen heroine quiz

I took this Jane Austen heroine's quiz, after seeing it on midknight_starr's blog.

I haven't read this book, but it was amusing to take the quiz, anyway.

: C A T H E R I N E ::

You are Catherine Morland of Northanger Abbey! You love a good Gothic romance - so much, in fact, that you'll fool yourself into thinking you're living one! You are imaginative and naive, which is at once endearing and perplexing. perhaps your heart is TOO pure...but it is adventurous. After all, you love a trip to Bath or a stay at an ancient Abbey.

I am Catherine Morland!

Stumped by doll hair

<in need of grouchy icon, where can i find those?>

I cannot finish Doctor Who. He has been sitting around headless for like 2 weeks. I have researched doll hair extensively. Here is the problem: David Tennant has short hair that spikes up at the top. Only at the top. How to accomplish this with yarn?

I started with crocheting a cap and satin stitching over it with brown to look like flat hair. And then...
Trial: Sew/knot on individual strands to hairline. Result: Medusa.
Trial: Mini yarn pompoms at crown of head. Result: Spiders sitting on the head, legs flailing every which way.
Imagined trial: Glue on rows of brown spiky eyelash yarn all over head. Imagined result: Messy spikes poking out everywhere!

If his hair were fluffy, I could glue on tufts of fluffy yarn.
If his hair were curly, I could do loop stitches.
If it weren't for that &()&*()*& spiky tuft I'd be done now.

<wondering if i should post this on craftster...>
