I use an Olympus SP-510UZ...it has a 10x optical zoom, which is great for fiber closeups.  And I love that it has automatic settings for indoor/available light, action shots, snow, night, etc.

My first wheel was sort of like that...I bought it at an estate sale and it had been built by a carpenter...no manual, etc.  I just used twine to tie the two ends together.  It worked fine.  I think it originally used a leather lace...which I imagine you could pick up in the form of shoelaces if you want something sturdier.

I finally took a group photo! 

I received:
a cloth pad from the noodle princess: i loooove the colors!  it's so well made.
a neckwarmer from cindy_23492: i love the color of this, too, and the big red button.  I wore it around town when we had our last snowstorm. 
roving from raynbow: already spun into yarn, I think I might try to knit some armwarmers with it.  And I want to blend the pink/purple bits that she sent into some other fiber and spin that into something else.
a drawstring bag from reethi: great fabric!  I'm still deciding what treasures I'll stow in it.
and an owl pincushion from SewingLori: my new rabbit has already run off with the owl and made it her best friend to toss around and play with.  So I guess when I'm not sewing the owl will double as a rabbit toy (sans pins of course).

Thank you sooo much to everyone, everything was so great!

The purplicious bag rocks.  Everyone sent out such great stuff in this swap.

Here's all the yarn I spun for this swap.  Everything is standard wool except for the center skein on the right, which is an angora/wool blend.

Knitwit-mango tree is excellence
Feralfeminine-thistle is beautiful

A wool/angora blend in a natural fawn color dyed with yellows and gold
