I suggest you start using a wire folded in half to pull the buries through instead of the method you are using. It's faster and will end your skin lose.
Here's a couple of links demonstrating the method. I used a loop turner in these, but a wire folded in half works exactly the same. Just insert the rope in the "eye" of the folded wire instead of the hook on the loop turner.
