Mixing with Brush vs Knife

Hello, I am very new to oil painting -- I've completed about 6 paintings so far using Mark's method. 
An issue that has become more and more frustrating for me is how my brush gets sooooo loaded up with paint when I'm mixing. I've tried switching to a palette knife but for some reason, I find it harder to mix accurately.  

Just wondering what preferences people might have in regards to brush vs knife when mixing. Should I give the knife another try and keep at it until if feels easier?  Or, any tips on how to keep a brush from loading up with so much paint?
