Yep. Make sure you place a marker so you know where the beginning is. The TechKnitter has a good way of joining circular knitting here (http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2007/01/circular-knitting-3-in-1-techjoin_26.html).

Yes, the working yarn will be coming from the right needle so when you knit the first stitch on the left needle it joins. You can do a few rows flat so you can be sure the stitches aren't twisted and then join. The gap at the join can be fixed at the end when you weave in the ends.

You would also want to make sure that your stitches are in a multiple of 4 so that the ribbing will line up correctly.
