Dipping into pattern design

Recently, I was asked to design some sock patterns for an acquaintance. Now, I've written my own patterns before, taught classes on sizing and designing socks, and feel pretty confident about the whole thing, but the (ought to be) simple process of converting a written pattern (a la Barbara Walker) to a circlular chart is driving me up the wall! There's a section on how to do this in Cookie A's Sock Innovation, but the book is at home and I'm at work with a lot of downtime on my hands. Can anyone recommend a good online explanation, because my Google-fu is failing me at the moment.

I'm also curious if any of you own a copy of Knit Visualizer. I have the demo, and I quite like it: I'm just wondering if the full version is worth the money.
