Oh, the 1980’s America. A land of rainbow everything, children riding without helmets after dark, sweet giant eyeglasses, all-synthesizer scores composed by movie directors, and creeping otherwordly horror possibly brought about by a government conspiracy. These socks are for you.

Toe up construction with a short-row heel

Mosaic knitting, cables, stripes.

I used a mini-skein set from Play at Life Fiber Arts to get the stripes (which is why the yarn yardage is so high). There is no reason you can’t do the sock with a single CC yarn, either as a solid, gradient, maki, or variegated.
