Wrap the line around your first loops between two of the turkshead cords and pull snug (frapping turns), then take the line over to the other "joint" between the turkshead cords, wrap there, pull tight, and tie with a square or surgeon's knot. The end result is a miniature tripod lashing, holding all 3 passes of the turkshead cord. If you have your fine line on a needle, you can also do a couple of stitches to make the whole thing even more secure.
