will blocking make a sweater bigger?
hi there,

i've read a lot of threads about using blocking to make sweaters that are too big smaller, but i'm wondering about blocking a sweater to make it bigger (i haven't sewn it together yet). the arms of the sweater are long enough, but a bit tight (they need to be wider, i guess). the front and back also turned out a bit tight and a bit short. is it possible to stretch them out and down during blocking? it's made of 85% wool, 15% mohair.

i am an extremely lazy knitter (this sweater is 3 years in the making), but more importantly i'm out of wool (in fact, i suspect i don't even have enough for the seams, sigh) so cutting and knitting more is out of the question...
