XStream arrayList to and from XML

I do not know where the problem is at the moment. First time using xml, and I got some problems with putting ArrayList in xml file and taking it from it.

I was found this and I tried to do it same way: How to convert List of Object to XML doc using XStream

but unfortunately I failed. Here what I have so far: Class that holds ArrayList:

public class ElbowList{

private ArrayList<Elbow> elbows = new ArrayList<>();

public ElbowList(){
    elbows = new ArrayList<Elbow>();
}

public void setElbows(ArrayList<Elbow> elbows){
    this.elbows.clear();
    this.elbows = elbows;
}

public ArrayList<Elbow> getElbows() {
    return elbows;
}

public void add(Elbow elbow){
    elbows.add(elbow);
}
}

Save to XML:

MainFrame mainFrame = (MainFrame) SwingUtilities.getWindowAncestor(SetupPanel.this);
            ElbowList elbowList = (ElbowList) mainFrame.getObjects().get(2); //get ElbowList object
            XStream xstream = new XStream();
            xstream.alias("elbow", Elbow.class);
            xstream.alias("elbows", ElbowList.class);
            xstream.addImplicitCollection(ElbowList.class, "elbows", Elbow.class);

            String xml = xstream.toXML(elbowList.getElbows());
            System.out.println(xml);

            try {
                PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter("Save.xml");
                out.println(xml);
                out.close();
            } catch (FileNotFoundException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(SetupPanel.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
            }

And that one above actually seems to work correctly. Load XML file, there is where I got an exception call:

try {
                XStream xstream = new XStream();
                FileReader reader = new FileReader("Save.xml");

                MainFrame mainFrame = (MainFrame) SwingUtilities.getWindowAncestor(SetupPanel.this);
                ElbowList elbowList = (ElbowList) mainFrame.getObjects().get(2);
                elbowList.setElbows((ArrayList<Elbow>) xstream.fromXML(reader));//exception occurs here

                SpacePanel spacePanel = (SpacePanel) mainFrame.getObjects().get(1);
                spacePanel.repaint();

            } catch (IOException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(SetupPanel.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
            }

An exception I get:

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" com.thoughtworks.xstream.converters.ConversionException: elbow : elbow

I dont get why there is an conversion exception, for me everything seems right if it comes to this line when exception occurs. I have no more ideas whats wrong, please help.

You forgot to add

XStream xstream = new XStream();
        xstream.alias("elbow", Elbow.class);
        xstream.alias("elbows", ElbowList.class);
        xstream.addImplicitCollection(ElbowList.class, "elbows", Elbow.class);

too, when loading.
