Dipping your hands in water will help deal with a sticky dough.

When it's that sticky, though, doesn't it just flatten out while it's baking? I've heard oiling your hands works real well, so as soon as I get some olive oil, I think I'm going to try that.

It does tend to flatten out while baking, so use a really hot oven and maybe even a hot Dutch Oven (see no-knead bread recipes) to get the "oven spring" that solves that problem. You want massive, random air-holes.

By all means leave them on the Silpat and bake away: it can take the heat, fragile as it seems.

A Dutch oven is on my wish list. This is on my wish list, too:
