Yes, I agree. You might also be a litte tighter than the given gauge and that's making the thumbhole smaller. When you pick up sts to knit the thumb, the opening will close up a bit more. Try slipping a stitch or two more and casting on more. Check too what the extra sts will do to the top part of the mitten and the decreases to shape the top.
