I'm wondering if you're twisting your purls, making them too tight to knit into on the other side.

Make sure your purling by inserting your needle from right to left into the front of the loop and/or check out the videos to make sure you're doing it properly.

If they're twisted, then it will make the knit rows hard to get the needle into.
