Yes, the SRH is fast and not so much with the counting, but (in my hands at least) just not so dependable. Meanwhile, here's a close up of the Dutch heel from my Madder Ribbed socks (Knitting Vintage Socks). Now there's a respectable heel.
I love this pattern. Love. It.
At first I thought the seams along the back of the heel might be weird, but actually they make for a seriously good-fitting sock. The star toe, I admit, isn't such a good fit for me (maybe Weldon's readers at the turn of the century had pointier feet?!).
