I just went and signed up! I was going to do Sock Wars but then
changed my mind and had been sort of regretting getting in on the
fun so this should make up for that
Merigold, there is a website hat-attack.com that has an faq you
can check out. From what I understand, you knit until you are
"killed" so you might only knit one hat or you might knit several
depending on how quickly your assassin gets to you. As far as
distances between targets I think it's just luck of the draw.
Some people pay extra money for super fast shipping but I don't
plan to do that. I'm not in it to win, just for the fun of getting to
get killed by a piece of knitting!
