What size needles do you own/plan to knit with? 4-6 -- go with sport, 7-9 -- go with worsted.

Oh yeah. I do that at least once every time I'm knitting lace -- always convince myself I just worked the wrong row, but then nope, that was the right one all along. :doh:

As for learning English if you knit Continental, it's good for two-handed Fair Isle-ing (can hold one yarn in either hand).

On the side facing away from you, skip the first stitch and go in to the second loop from the...

Sorry you're not feeling well. :(
