So, I'm super impatient. I just dyed some yarn tonight and am ready to ball it up! It's superwash sock yarn...if I take a hairdryer to it will it mess it up?

If it's wool, I'd not do the hairdryer route. Let it air-dry.
Otherwise, try a piece. Measure it before and after drying. That should help you answer your own question.
Or... if you want it to be washable (maybe), go ahead and shrink it before you make your wonderful project. Should at least reduce the chance of post-shrinkage.
