I think it works out at about 1200 yards. Is it enough for a nice big shawl? Or is it enough for a tank-top or vest? Any advice?

Yikes, that seems like a whole lot of yarn to me. You should be able to make almost anything you want.

I recently bought the Spirit of the Southwest shawl pattern that calls for 1200 yards of laceweight yarn and seems like an easy, nice pattern (google the title and you should be able to find it)

The large version of Leaf Lace Shawl (Fiber Trends) calls for 1175 yds of lace weight yarn.
