Jordan, pix 3 and 4 look like success. Difficult to tell from the pix, cuttings start to shoot due to the energy in the cutting only to fail just when all looks OK. It's very rewarding when you can propagate this way. I would also try Layering plants in your own garden should you want to increase any of the plants you have. Any good rose book usually shows the technique. Basically it is bending a cane over and stapling it to the ground. The cane in the ground is cut halfway across the diameter then cut longetudinally up the cane for 1/2" an inch.
Wet the cut area with clean water and when half dry sprinkle the cut area with powdered rooting hormone. Then place a match across the longetudinal cut. The system is to have the parent plant feed the cane while the cut section grows roots. When roots are plentiful in the cut section the cane can be cut off with the new roots attached.
When doing any cutting work temperature is important. 25C is considered good so try propagating middle Spring and middle Autumn.
The same method can be used by leaving the cane up, then wrapping the cut area with damp Spagnum Moss in a plastic bag with both ends tied around the cane to keep moss and moisture in.

Jordan IMO I would leave the tops off for some part of the day and in the warm/part shade of the day to aclimatise it bit by bit.

Dan, in town here this morning in town they went down to minus 4.something. We are out of town in a dip on the river and we go down 2 or 3 degrees lower than town.
I have all my cuttings in pots outside, but since they have spent all the time outside they (fingers crossed) will be aclimatised.
As yours are in a sunroom, I would uncover them and then gently try and harden them off.
Hope this helps.
