Yes, watch the videos...you'll be knitting up lace before you know it!
And yes, turn the work. I didn't know that when I started, so I knitted back across left-handed...for almost twenty years. While it works, it's certainly not the fastest way to handle matters. If you're right-handed, or knitting that way, at the end of a row you have your right needle full of stitches and your left needle empty. Lay down the empty one, put the full needle in your left hand so you're looking at the back of the last row and the needle tip is pointing to your right, pick up the empty needle and have at it again.
