Off the Injured List for Good!

As you know, I developed a cyst on my hand this fall and in December my doctor concluded that it was caused by knitting and ordered me to stop knitting until it went away:
Several weeks passed until I finally decided to go against doctor's orders and knit again anyway... then, miraculously, I looked down at my hand that weekend and the cyst was gone!!  Whoo hoo!

Then it came back.... :(
My doctor referred me to a hand surgeon who told me this morning that the cyst is no big deal and I can start knitting again!  YAY!
Technically, the cyst needs to be surgically removed, but the doctor said as long as it doesn't bother me, it doesn't bother him and there is no reason to remove it.  He also said that it is "inconclusive" whether knitting caused it, but stopping knitting definitely isn't going to help it go away, so I'm fine to do whatever I want!  Yay!
