It's real difficult to pull the stitch through after you 'wrap' the knit stitch. The netting, together with the cotton, RESISTS the pulling through! It sorta gets 'stuck' on itself. Therefore you are always 'muscling' the stitch.
In addition, the coarse netting, while it makes the best scrubbie, tears your skin up. It's abrasive on certain parts of your hands, over and over, it's like using an emery board on your fingers FOR HOURS.
Don't get me wrong, knitting only two scrubbies in an evening is fine, but you're relieved when you're done.
Fourteen scrubbies in two days is a killer.
