The Sexy Knitter - Knitter's Tool Tins
Bad quality 1 out of 5
The scissors were very stiff and of poor quality. The stitch markers were stars made out of paper and almost useless as they constantly snagged on the yarn, whilst the paper unfolds. Do not recommend!

Nelkin Designs - Cambio Cowl
Love the pattern, but not the yarn 2 out of 5
I enjoyed working on this pattern it's a quick project and the pattern is easy to learn. But I was very disappointed in the yarn, which I know is a bold statement, since these yarns were specifically selected and dyed for these kits. I purchased the Vertigo kit, which is meant to shift through brown, yellow, green, sky blue, and purple against a backdrop of a light blue. Sadly, the colors in my finished project just didn't compare. First, the solid yarn was far darker than I expected. I understand that dye variations happen and that colors display differently on some screens, but the blue I received was too dark to contrast with the variegated yarn. So my cowl looks overwhelmingly blue with a few muddy pops and hints of color. The solid blue just overpowers the other colors. Second, the color changes on my ball of variegated yarn were extremely long even though I got proper gauge. So my cowl has nowhere near as much color as the sample I didn't even get to the brown. The pattern did caution me to start with the color I liked the most, since all of the yarn would not be used, but I didn't expect to have a color last for so many repeats of the pattern and to not even get to an entire shade. I could have cut the yarn and forced more rapid color changes, but this would have defeated the purpose of having the continuous ball of variegated yarn. Finally, once I washed and blocked the finished piece, it was far drapier than I expected despite proper gauge. This would be absolutely lovely for a scarf or shawl, but for a patterned cowl like this, I expected more stability. Because of the drapiness, my finished cowl flops open and shows the wrong side of the knitting -- which is a bit of a problem after tediously crossing all of those X stitches. Sadly, this is probably the first thing I've ever purchased from JBW that hasn't knocked my socks off. I would definitely knit the cowl again, but not with these selected and quite expensive yarns.

Lorna's Laces - Time and Space Kits
Time and Space Scarf 3 out of 5
I am a loose to normal knitter so I am starting over on #9 needles. I increased the width to 30 stitches and am having good results so far. I also am using a slipped stitch edge which is not mentioned in the pattern. Worried about running out of yarn so I ordered another kit.

Jimmy Beans Wool - Yarn Bouquets
Time and Space Scarf 3 out of 5
The yarn is beautiful, however I did not receive the labels with the shipment. I also would suggest that while the straight needles make for nice stems it would be nice if at least one pair were the size needed for the included free pattern, as the pattern was the primary reason for me ordering this bouquet in the first place.
