Adding extra yeast

I'm having eyesight problems, and I'm wondering what would happen if I unintentionally put in, say, a tablespoon of yeast to my bread mixture, when it should only be a teaspoon? It hasn't happened yet, but it won't be long!! Would the bread just keep rising and rising and turn out very fluffy? Or would it be a complete disaster?

When I have deliverately used more yeast, I found the dough rose faster. When it reached the aount of rising I wnated, I simply baked the bread, and the result was pretty much the same as with the "normal" amount of yeast. I suppose your first guess is right - if left to its own devices, it would just keep rising and become very light.
