Trusted keys?

I am sending mail to someone with a key which I have signed with both my RSA
and DSA keys:

vulcan:~> gpg -kvv kspaink
pub  1024R/FA92E2C5 1995-10-15 Karin Spaink <>
sig        86156B85 1999-11-30  Johan Wevers <>
sig        D42F80B1 1995-11-08  Johan Wevers <>

However, when I want to send her encrypted mail, I get the following

vulcan:~> gpg -aes -r kspaink tempf


Could not find a valid trust path to the key.  Let's see whether we
can assign some missing owner trust values.

No path leading to one of our keys found.

1024R/FA92E2C5 1995-10-15 "Karin Spaink <>"
             Fingerprint: 4E E3 05 07 AE 8E 4D 5D  6C AE 89 E1 5B 9F 3F DE

It is NOT certain that the key belongs to its owner.
If you *really* know what you are doing, you may answer
the next question with yes

I'm using gpg 1.0.0. What can I do to remove this warning? (I know her
personally so I know the key is OK).
