There are a lot of mittens and gloves patterns out there, so I would look around and choose one to fit what you can do. There are patterns where you knit flat, then seam up the edges, knit in the round, etc. There's also gusset patterns and non-gusset patterns. (The gusset is shaping worked for the thumb.) Choose what makes sense to you and you know you can do... even if it is a bit of a challenge. Also, I prefer dpns over circular. Sometimes, it's just better to do circular but dpns typically work for anything. One thing to keep in mind is to make sure your tension is correct as you knit to the next needle. Some people tend to go too loose and end up with a hole there and some too tight and you can see those spots, as well... just not as much.
