In each of these shots you can see the white "strings" which are the heddles. These are needed to create a "shed" for passing your weft threads through when weaving.
Here is Evelyn's loom "dressed". In other words, the warp threads have all been measured and wound on around the pegs. The first one goes through a heddle and over the top post, the second one is "open" (doesn't go through a heddle) and doesn't go over the top post. You continue with the odd numbers going through the heddles and the even numbers being open until you have all the warp threads on that you decided you wanted for the width of your project.
