3x9 Subway Ceramic Tile Trowel Size

Hello all!

I've been a lurker for a while, but haven't found the best answers for my questions.

I'm about to put up 3x9 Subway Ceramic tile on my walls. I don't know which trowel would be best to use. I will be doing herringbone for two walls, and classic straight lines for the other set of walls.

I will be using a darker grout. Would it be wise to keep my grey thin-set, or go get white thin-set? I'm stuck in the middle on what to do with that.

Thank you!

gray thinset and a 1/4 x 3/8 trowel. Maybe 1/4 x 1/4 but I'd lean towards 3/8
