I went to the doctor this morning to get a weird bump on my finger checked out and it turns out that it is a cyst, most likely caused by the repetitive motion of all the excessive knitting I have been doing lately. It doesn't hurt, luckily, but if it doesn't go away on its own, I'm going to have to get it surgically removed, which is no fun.
In conclusion: I am banned from knitting for three to four weeks until this heals.
I'M SO BUMMED OUT!!!
