Creating crochet diagrams from instructions
I found a nice crochet book at a yard sale yesterday. It's called 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans, by Jan Eaton. There are beautiful color illustrations of all the different blocks, but only written instructions, and no diagrams.

I would like to try some of the blocks, but I think it would help me if I could use diagrams in addition to the instructions. Does anybody use a particular method or software program to create crochet diagrams? I hardly ever use graphics at work, so I'm really out of loop on things that would be helpful. I won't mind buying a reasonably priced program, if necessary. Thank you!

words to symbol
There is a web site which has a freebie to do it but it only works with Windows:

I have a Macintosh and would love to translate the patterns I am creating into symbols/charts.
I will never stop learning or sharing my knowledge!
