Decapatation - not for the faint of heart!

This came to me in the mail last week...I'd knit this dragon a few years ago for my nephew.  It must have tangled with a very large beast.  Perhaps the families new puppy?



After consulting with my knitting buddies, I thought I could perhaps fix him.  It wasn't going to be easy, the scarf has been worn hard and is pretty heavily felted.  I carefully picked out stitches on both sides till I had a full row on each piece.  I then used a 3-needle bind-off to put him back together.  Looks pretty good for a full head replacement.
