I have a specific idea in my head of what kind of picture I want my sweater to have and it's just a small picture (about three inches).  What I want to do is find some sort of graph creater online that when I print it out, it will be the exact same size as my swatch with the correct amount of boxes (and box sizes) equal to the size of my knit stitches.  This way, I can use the graph to create my own picture and use that as a pattern for intarsia knitting.  I am aware of a few that are out there but I am wondering if anyone has used any of the available graph creaters online to create their own pictures?

A walk-in closet full of yarn isn't TOO much...

Knitpro from Microrevolt (http://www.microrevolt.org/) will make a chart from a picture, but your picture would need to be on your computer in some sort of way.

I've used a combination of that site and imaging software.

Generate your graph paper, then layer it over your source image. Lower the transparency of your graph and colour it in.

A bit more complex than pumping your picture into a website, but I like complex.

I've used knitpro before for a couple of things.  I haven't been there in a while, but you should be able to select your gauge/yarn weight/something similar so that you get the right amount of stitches.
