You have 3 empty containers: 15, 10 and 6 ounces.
You need to end up with 1 ounce of water in 2 of the containers.
Containers can be filled from your kitchen water tap!
How you do that?

10->6 4 left put in 15 (8 in 15)(empty 6)
10->6 4 left put in 15 (12 in 15)(empty 6)
10->6 4 left put 3 in 15 (1 in 10)

15->6 9 left in 15 (empty 6)

Did you ever stop to think and then forget to start again?

Sorry Cue: can't "follow" your solution.
Each individual step needs to be listed, so we end up also with number of steps.
Then the "fun" is whoever gets lowest number of steps wins!

Here's a 10 steps solution:
Code
STEP  [15]   [10]   [6]
  1     0     10     0 : fill [10]
  2    10      0     0 : [10] to [15]
  3    10      0     6 : fill [6]
  4    15      0     1 : fill [15] from [6]
  5     5     10     1 : fill [10] from [15]
  6     0     10     1 : empty [15]
  7    10      0     1 : dump [10] in [15]
  8    10      1     0 : dump [6] in [10]
  9    10      1     6 : fill [6]
 10    15      1     1 : fill [15] from [6]


Could you show each of your steps.
Sorry, that's the way these darn container puzzles work!

  3       4       0      6   : [10] to [15]
  4       4       0      0   : Empty [6]
  5       4      10      0   : fill [10]
