I just purchased about 800 yards of a dark grey cashmere-silk blend yarn on e-bay for a STEAL. Any suggestions on what I should do with it?

OOoooooohhh.... What's the gauge? My initial thought is: SHAWL. Or if you don't have enough, a generous-sized scarf. This will let you enjoy the softness of this yarn to its fullest, using an airy lace-esque pattern so you can get more yardage out of your yarn, vs. a tight stockinette.

Anyone else have ideas?

None other than the scarf, but I am very jealous! Mmm... cashmere/silk....

Har har har . . . hands of the goods, gals. This is my first "fine" yarn. I'm so ecstatic! I couldn't believe it when I saw it on eBay for under $3. Just keep checking on e-bay and soon, you too will be figuring ouy what the heck to do with your 800 yd skein!
