Go back to the label and divide the number of yards in the skein by the number of grams. That will give you how many yards per gram-- let's say it's sock yarn, 200 yards for 50 grams. Every gram would be 4 yards. So 20 grams times 4 yards would mean you'd knitted 80 yards that day.
Note to self: buy postal scale.
