Are you confusing Caron's One Pound which is a full worsted, with Lion's Pound of Love though it does seem to be a thinner weight.

Knit Picks Wool of the Andes was supposed to be a worsted weight, but ended up being a light worsted weight, whatever that is. It's more like a sport. I grabbed two Red Heart Supersavers the other day. Both worsteds. The solid color is thicker than the variegated. Sheesh! All I can say is, you've got to swatch, swatch, swatch anything you're not familiar with.
WoTA is like a worsted to me, but RHSS is more of an aran, especially the 25 year old variety I'm using now, it's like a light bulky. You're skipping over dk which comes between sport and worsted and is sometimes like a thinner worsted.
