Yeah, I got a Malabrigo skein! (Tove and I both agreed the yarn lotto idea is a brilliant one).

I’ve now made some progress. Cast on and knit two rows. The yarn is lovely!

I’ve also had a chance to check out Eat.Sleep.Knit a bit more and they have some lovely yarn brands in stock. The site is easily navigated and the pictures are wonderful. I think I might have found a new favorite yarn shop! AND customs didn’t stop my package this time (woho)!
