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.
My LB Pound of Love label states: Super Soft 4 ply knitting worsted weight. Yes, it is much thinner than Caron's One Pound. RHSS is something of a crap shoot IMHO; the variegateds almost always have some very, very thin and really thick parts and it seems to me that the colors are connected to the variations; one color will be fatter than another and some are much softer than others. Currently I've decided I like the RH With Love. I've not used a lot of it but so far it's soft and I've not seen the thick-thin-medium-very thin-very-thick stuff going on.
