I hope this makes sense:
So I've just finished knitting a shawl but i want to stretch it so that it is bigger and the stitches are seperated but I'm not sure if I should weave in the ends before or after stretching it. I'm worried that if i weave the ends in first, that when I stretch it the ends will pop out. Any advice?

I would weave in the ends after blocking it, yes.

Yeah, that's what I thought but I wanted a second opinion. Thanks!
