Absolutely beautiful! It inspired me so much that I've been working on drawing my own intarsia charts and figuring out how to... Knitpro is really great! And the tutorial on Knitty too! But both gives you a chart with square stitches. It might not be significant if you don't felt it. Anyway, I made up a tutorial for making a What You See Is What You Get Chart. A chart with the exact gauge for your yarn. The stitches will be rectangular and not square and you won't end up with a squeezed image.  I followed Knitty's instruction on making charts with Photoshop but simply added a few things: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/FEATsmartchart.html
Here is an example:

Terribly jealous of your husband... and I feel that I must be "inspired" by your idea and rip it off... I absolutely adore Kurt.

I think I'll do a pillow though... or a sweater, in blues.

Anyway... beautiful.
