I have two balls of laceweight wool that totals 2000 yards. Would this be enough to make a shawl? If you think it is, do you have a link/links to a free pattern you suggest?

If it isn't enough for a shawl, what would you suggest? I bought it from ebay with a shawl in mind, but I've never worked with this weight nor have I ever made a shawl.
