GAA-Priscilla Gibson-Roberts Square, Part 2

I'm now on the second stage of this square for The Great American Afghan. After finishing the inner square with the stack of three hearts on the right-hand side and plain stockinette stitch on the left-hand side, stitches were picked up all the way around, and now the outer perimeter of the square is being knitted in the round with increases at the four corners every other round. I think I have 3 or 4 more rounds to go before changing to the larger needles (which for me is size 4) and then doing the garter stitch border rounds and binding off.
Here's a look at the wrong side which better shows the bowl shape it is in while it's on the circular needle (using size 3 so far) as well as the markers where the corner increases are being done.

After the knitting of the square is completed, there is still embroidery to do on it, and the little pair of socks has to be knitted and then sewn onto the stockinette panel on the left side of the inner square. I did find and order a set of double-pointed needles in sizes 000, 00, 0 and 1, so hopefully my order will get here before I'm finished with everything else on this square and ready to knit the little socks. Since I had to go down two needle sizes to get gauge for the square, it seems I will need to knit the little socks on size 000 needles, which is two sizes down from the size suggested in the pattern.

I found the set of double-pointed needles at Frugal Knitting Haus.
