Hi,
I don't see any problem with you skipping. However, you need to start gradually. However, if the knee's giving you a problem again, stop skipping, do some exercises to strengthen the quadriceps (muscles in the front of the thigh). Try these exercises for at least 6 weeks. Gradually start skipping again and if you still notice pain, it would be advisable to visit an Orthopaedician.

if you are still having knee pain then get it checked before starting again. otherwise skipping will be good as you can exercise at home.
