You obviously started with no input method active (that is the default,
I think).  That's why `describe-input-method' gave an error.  If you
have selected your input method with

   `C-x <RET> C-\ METHOD <RET>'

it is also activated.  `C-\' toggles between enabled and disabled.  So,
to return to the previous state, just hit C-\.


BTW, this is described in the Emacs manual, under

  International > Input Methods

and

  International > Select Input Method
