Sweater Planning: Intarsia Triangles WIP

Even though I have the tiniest bit of knitting left to do on my cabled City Tweed sweater, I started in on the next project. I couldn't resist! My next sweater is going to be similar to the intarsia sweater in my print design project, but with some different colors. 

I purchased an intarsia carriage off eBay, and the day it came I was immediately trying it out. This thing is incredible! I'm so stoked about the possibilities here! However, charting the entire sweater out on graph paper is less than ideal. Anybody know of a website where you can do this? All I could find were sites where you upload a photo and it turns it into a pattern -- and I don't have a photo to use, since it is an all-over pattern. It would be perfect if I could digitally just fill in a chart!

In the meantime, it's all about the hand drawing and coloring. I know it will be worth it once I start knitting, but for now, it's pretty tedious. Only the excitement of actually putting this on the machine is getting me through!
