How many pairs I can make from one skein

I wanted to try to knit a pair of sneaker socks. So I tried one pair but the ribbing is much to long for my taste. So I finished that pair and gave it a new try. So I only knit a shout ribbing and I like the second pair the way they turned out.
After these two pairs 14 gram of yarn remained. This is enough to knit one pair of socks for a premature baby.
So the answer is that I made three pairs of socks from it.

My sockapalooza socks are travelling to my sockpal. She lives somewhere on the west coast of the United Stated. I hope my package will arrive safe and sound til next weekend.

Das nenne ich eine gute Ausbeute :-) Ich hab´ auch noch Sneakers auf den Nadeln, aber im Moment keine Lust auf Socken.
Liebe Grüße

Your package arrived today! The socks fit and are lovely and blue and perfect! And I LOVE the yarn you sent with them, so pretty, and like none of the other Regia I've seen around here! Thank you!

They look great. I bet they feel good too. Someday I hope to be able to knit socks but I do believe that's far away on the calendar for me.
