She has pretty long skinny feet-about 4.5inches, So newborn socks are too small but many 6-12mos ones are too big. Most of the ones we try are not snug enough and slip off right away or stretch out in a matter of 15 min of kicking.
I also need some warm wool socks for the winter since our house is pretty cold in the winter. Any ideas on affordable (less than $10 per pr) wool or wool blend socks/booties that will stay on?
I love the slippers from here http://www.padraigcottage.com/ but my daughter was able to get them off herself so that may not work. But they are knit wool with woolskin bottoms.
They have them at REI.com, they're the SmartWool "Amigo" toddler socks.

Now I have a 5mo girl. Its been warm most of her life but that is changing. The trumpette are almost too small. Seriously these socks don't fall off. We've passed them through 2 other babies already and they came back. In matched pairs.
I decided to try some other things w/ baby number 2. Hanna Andersson "my best first socks" (?) have been winners. They are quite cozy too, cotton loopy fleece on the inside. Expensive, but 2 pairs are plenty rather than having a drawer full of single, mismatched, cheaper socks we have 4 of those (I get 2 pr in the same color, just in case). The swedish moccasins aren't staying on very well which is disappointing since they weren't cheap and DS wears those at school now for his "indoor socks" and loves them.

Old Navy triple roll socks are the only way to go in my opinion. They have grippies on the bottom for slip resistance, and they can roll all the way up to the knee, or stay nicely folded over. If you catch them at the right time they are 10 for $10.
ita-those are the only ones that stay up on my chunky no-ankle babies
gap has some that are similar also.
