Colorado boy knits hats for hospital patients

Everyone has their own hobbies, but one Colorado 10-year-old has picked one that is making a difference for some very special kids.

Like many boys, Garrett Lowry is crazy about sports and even has a nickname on the field: “Bam Bam.”

His parents, Sheryl and Don, knew a few years ago there was something special about their son.

When he’s not on the field, Garrett knits caps using a loom.

It started as a class project, and then Garrett decided to enlist the help of his mother and grandmother to mkae 50 caps for kids at Children’s Hospital Colorado.

“Going through that kind of thing might scare people, and I just want to make something that can make them more comfortable while they are in the hospital,” Garrett said.

Garrett said knitting is a calming activity for him.

After a couple of month of hard work, he was able to delivery his hats, brightening the patients’ days.
