mind you
I am not a spider expert..but I think this is a hacklemesh weaver..had one in my sock once.

 
Hacklemesh weaver
Agreed. I'd suggest genus Amaurobius. Maybe A. ferox, though I'm not sure if there might be others with similar patterns in your area.

Great shots.

 
That seems likely to me, too.
I added a ventral view in case that helps with ID.
