In latex, when I'm trying to cross reference an item from an enumerated list, instead of getting 6.3, I'm getting 66.3,

My list is a normal list just like any other, only I'm declaring the codes below in my preamble:

I would kindly advise against such definitions since is a far more convenient and useful alternative in enumitem:

enter image description here

\usepackage{enumitem}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumitem
  \item Some item
    \item Another item \label{myitem}
    \item Yet another item
See Item~\ref{myitem}.

Note that different label and ref key-values are supplied, since the former includes a trailing period . that you don't want to include in the latter. Using label* inherits the label from the higher level in the nested environment.
